Financial contributions and, on the other hand, means from the federal budget, serve under Art 34 of the KommAustria Act (KOG BGBl I No 32/2001 in its current version) for the financing in fulfilment of her legal duties of originating expenditure of the RTR on the one hand. Operators or providers of public communications networks or services are required to pay an annual financial contribution to cover RTR's expenses beyond the amount of the Austrian federal budget. This contribution is based on each organization's share of its industry's overall revenues.
The financial contribution to be paid by each business is calculated using the ratio of the business revenues to the overall revenues of the industry.
The guidelines enclose a list of the specific revenues which are subject to financial contributions.

We would require your projected revenues for 2023 by January 15, 2023 in order to be able to calculate your preliminary financial contribution for the year 2023. If we do not receive the necessary data by that time, we will estimate your revenues pursuant to Art 34 Par 7 KOG.
The financial contribution for 2023 is to be paid in four installments. Pursuant to Art 34 Par 9 KOG, these amounts are due at the end of each quarter (March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31 2023). In the assessment for the first quarter, financial contributions which do not exceed EUR 1,000.00 for the year will be calculated as a one-off payment covering the entire year. The resulting interest income for RTR is also accounted for in the assessment. Under Art 34 Par 12 KOG, RTR will account for financial contributions on the basis of actual revenues and expenses in October of the ensuing year. Based on these calculations, RTR is required to credit the financial contributions paid in installments or to demand additional payments from individual contributors.
The spreadsheet for reporting revenues is available as download.
