Redistribution of Excess Contribution 2019

At the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) on October 2019, the GM decided that the excess contribution paid in 2019 would be redistributed to the membership in 2020.

Only members with active LIRs on 31 December will receive a redistribution. If you were merging LIR accounts and your merger was finalised by 31 December 2019 then no redistribution will apply for those LIR accounts that closed in 2019.

The amount to be redistributed for 2019 is EUR 8,365,249.

Calculation of the Redistribution

The amount of the redistribution applied to each LIR account is based on the annual membership fee paid in 2019. This includes the membership contribution and fees for Independent Internet Number Resources and/or Legacy Internet Resources.  

Sign-up fees and/or re-activation fees are excluded from the calculation.

The redistribution formula is:

Paid Annual
Membership fee 2019
---------------------- * Redistribution amount 2019
Total annual fees 2019
paid by all members

For 2019, the applicable redistribution formula is:

Paid Annual Membership fee 2019
-------------------------------- * EUR 8,365,249
EUR 33,099,600


1. Redistribution for a LIR account that had no IR or LSHR

EUR 1,400
-------------- * EUR 8,365,249 = EUR 353.82
EUR 33,099,600

2. Redistribution for a LIR account with ten IR and five LSHR 

EUR 1,400 + (10 IR*EUR 50)
+ (5 LSHR*EUR 50)
-------------------------- * EUR 8,365,249 = EUR 543.37
EUR 33,099,600

We will send the annual invoices in mid-February 2020. There, the exact redistribution amount for 2019, when applicable, will be included. The redistribution will not be refunded but will be marked as a discount on your invoice for 2020.

If you believe that the calculation of the redistribution to your account is incorrect, please inform us within two weeks after receiving your invoice. After this period, the calculation will be final.
