Redistribution of Excess Contribution 2020

At the RIPE NCC General Meeting (GM) on October 2020, the GM decided that the excess contribution paid in 2020 would be redistributed to the membership in 2021.

Only members with active LIRs on 31 December 2020 will receive a redistribution. If you were merging LIR accounts and your merger was finalised by 31 December 2020 then no redistribution will apply for those LIR accounts that closed in 2020.

The amount to be redistributed for 2020 is EUR 11,035,874.

Calculation of the Redistribution

The amount of the redistribution applied to each LIR account is based on the annual membership fee paid in 2020. This includes the membership contribution and fees for Independent Internet Number Resources nd/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 2020
---------------------- * Redistribution amount 2020
Total annual fees 2020
paid by all members

For 2020, the applicable redistribution formula is:

Paid Annual Membership fee 2020
------------------------------- * EUR 11,035,874
         EUR 33,518,200 


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

EUR 1,400
-------------- * EUR 11,035,874  = EUR 460.95
EUR 33,518,200

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

EUR 1,400 + (10 IR*EUR 50)
+ (5 LSHR*EUR 50)
-------------------------- * EUR 11,035,874 = EUR 707.89
      EUR 33,518,200  

We will send the annual invoices in February 2021. There, the exact redistribution amount for 2020, when applicable, will be included. The redistribution will not be refunded but will be marked as a discount on your invoice for 2021.

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.
