Russian VAT Legislation (Article 174.2 of the Russian Tax Code)

We are aware of the special regulation of VAT on electronic services in Russia, in particular Article 174.2 of the Russian Tax Code. However, we do not provide electronic services and therefore are not subject to this regulation.

Redistribution of Excess Contributions 2023

As stated in the Standard Service Agreement (article 7.3), the excess amount shall be returned to the member in proportion to the level of paid fees in the relevant year. This excess amount shall be credited to the Member on the fee of the year following the year that the Clearing House procedure has taken place.

During the RIPE NCC General Meeting held on 29 November - 1 December 2023, members voted to redistribute the RIPE NCC 2024 financial surplus (Resolution 1) to the membership in 2023. The redistribution per LIR account will appear on the 2024 invoice when applicable.
