Redistribution of Excess Contribution 2021

At the RIPE NCC General Meeting held on 24-29 November 2021, the GM decided that the excess contribution paid in 2021 would be redistributed to the membership in 2022.

Only members with active LIRs on 31 December 2021 will receive a redistribution. If you were merging LIR accounts and your merger was finalised by 31 December 2021 then no redistribution will apply for those LIR accounts that closed in 2021.

The amount to be redistributed for 2021 is EUR 13,515,562.

Calculation of the Redistribution

The amount of the redistribution applied to each LIR account is based on the annual contribution paid in 2021. This includes the service fee 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 contribution 2021     
 ----------------------------  *  Redistribution amount 2021
 Total annual contribution 
 paid by members with active
LIRs on 31 December 2021      


For 2021, the applicable redistribution formula is:

  Paid annual contribution 2021
-------------------------------  *  EUR 13,515,562
          EUR 30,832,700        



  1. Redistribution for a LIR account that had no IR or LSHR
   EUR 1,400  
 --------------  *  EUR 13,515,562  =  EUR 613.69
 EUR 30,832,700


  1. Redistribution for a LIR account with ten IR and five LSHR 
 EUR 1,400 + (10 IR*EUR 50) 
     + (5 LSHR*EUR 50)
--------------------------  *  EUR 13,515,562  =  EUR 942.46
       EUR 30,832,700  


We will send the annual invoices at the end of the first quarter of 2022. There, the exact redistribution amount for 2021, when applicable, will be included. The redistribution will not be refunded but will be marked as a discount on your invoice for 2022.

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.
