Administrative Contributions

On 8 January 2018, a new regulation on the final system of administrative contributions came into force covering the running costs of the SRB. This regulation replaces the transitional system that had been in place since the Board started its operations in November 2014 and outlines the permanent system for financing the SRB’s running expenses.

Under the new system, all credit institutions established in the Banking Union need to contribute to the administrative expenditures of the SRB. The same holds true for all parent undertakings (incl. financial holding and mixed financial holding companies), investment firms and financial institutions that are covered by the consolidated supervision of the ECB.

In 2018, following the entry into force of the final system, the contributions of all institutions that already contributed to the Board’s administrative expenditure by way of instalments under the provisional system have been recalculated. Entities that did not contribute to the administrative expenditure of the Board under the provisional system have been requested to pay their share of the operating expenses, retrospectively for the financial years 2015, 2016 and 2017 (the months of November and December 2014 are considered part of the financial year 2015).

The differences between the instalments paid, if any, and the recalculated contributions have been partly settled by increasing or decreasing the contributions due from these entities for the 2018 financial year. Any remaining amounts from that calculation will be settled in the following years in accordance with the regulation.
