Fees for operations

Fees for operations with reporting duty.

Those that carry out operations with reporting duty must pay certain fees. The fees are specified in PTS's fee provisions.

PTS's operations are financed by fees from operators, companies and persons holding permits which PTS supervise, such as permits for various radio-related permits.

The size of the fees depends on the revenue that the actor has submitted as fee-qualifying revenue. The fees are:

  • Annual fee for operations with reporting duty.
  • Annual fee for financing measures against serious peacetime threats to and strains on electric communication, known as an emergency surcharge.
  • Annual inspection fee in accordance with the Act (2000:121) on Radio and Teleterminal Equipment, also known as an RTTE fee.
  • In the first reported year, an administrative fee of SEK 1,000 is also charged.

The size of the fee is set annually in PTS's fee provisions.

What the fee is based on

The fee is based on the revenue of the operations with reporting duty. Annual revenue refers to the revenue in the last fiscal year in the business subject to reporting duty pursuant to Chapter 2, Section 1 of the Electronic Communications Act (2003:389) (LEK). The actor shall each year provide PTS with revenue information by submitting the data via "Svensk telemarknad", which PTS sends out at the start of each year.

Declaration of fee-qualifying revenue

PTS wants actors with the highest fee-qualifying revenue to supplement their reporting in Svensk telemarknad with a certificate. Selected actors will be contacted by PTS.

To confirm the actors' fee data, PTS requests actors with a fee-qualifying revenue of more than SEK 30 million to certify their fee-qualifying revenue for 2016. The total annual revenue for the selected actors constitutes around 96 per cent of PTS's revenue stemming from operations with reporting duty. The selection is made based on reporting of 2015 annual revenues to Svensk telemarknad. The purpose of the certificate is to increase the reliability of the data submitted by the actors.

The certificate shall be signed by the Head of Finance or corresponding position. The certificate is e-mailed to anmalningsplikt@pts.se.
