Charges for those notified

Charges for those notified (year 2016) according to the Swedish Electronic Act.

The Government prescribes by means of ordinances how PTS shall be financed. PTS’s operations are funded by charges, which among other things mean that those who have been notified shall pay certain charges. PTS issues charges regulations annually, where the charges are determined. Currently, charges are regulated by PTSFS 2016:7. The charges regulations are revised annually. The information shown below relates to the year 2017.

The annual turnover forming the basis of charges refers to the turnover during the immediately preceding financial year of the operation referred to in the notification. It is prescribed by the provisions that different charges apply for those notified having a turnover (for the operation subject to a notification obligation) exceeding or alternatively under SEK 5 million.

Those subject to a notification obligation, shall when submitting the notification, pay a processing charge of 1 000 kronor. PTS will issue an invoice for this when the notification has been received.

Those whose annual turnover, for the operation subject to a notification obligation, is less than SEK 5 million per year shall pay an annual charge which amounts to SEK 1000.

Those subject to a notification obligation with a turnover that is equal to or exceeds SEK 5 million per year, for the operation subject to the notification obligation, shall pay an annual charge to PTS. This charge amounts to 0,161 per cent of the annual turnover of the operation subject to the notification obligation.

Those subject to a notification obligation with a turnover that is equal to or exceeds SEK 30 million per year, for the operation subject to the notification obligation, shall also pay an annual emergency surcharge to PTS. This charge amounts to 0,162 per cent of the annual turnover of the operation subject to the notification obligation. For further details see www.pts.se, or contact PTS.

There is also a charge on radio and telecommunications terminal equipment, RTTE (turnover under SEK 5 million = SEK 100, turnover over SEK 5 million = 0,007 per cent of turnover) for further details see www.pts.se, or contact PTS. All operators that are notified in Sweden are subject to this fee and have to pay it.

In order for PTS to impose the correct annual charge for the forthcoming year, an information request is dispatched annually (usually in January every year) to those notified, which should be completed and returned to PTS.

If details of annual turnover are not received, are lacking or inadequate, the annual turnover will be estimated.
