PolyReg charges an admission fee for the examination of the membership application, which is owed in the sense of an examination fee even if the membership application has to be rejected or if it cannot be accepted.
Each member pays an annual fee per calendar year, which is assessed according to the number of persons with AMLA-relevant functions working in the company. The annual premium was adjusted as of 1.1.2020 and takes into account the supervisory levy. The minimum annual premium for small businesses is generally Fr. 1400 (reduced fee of Fr. 1000 for financial intermediaries without a majority of AMLA-relevant activities; inactive members pay Fr. 850 per year). For company size IV, the Board determines the admission fees and the annual premium in consultation with the member. However, this may not be lower than for members of company size III.
|Company size||Full fee (in CHF)||Reduced fee (in CHF)|
|I (1-3 Persons)||1200||1400||900||1000|
|II (4-8 Persons)||2400||2800||1800||2000|
|III (9-27 Persons)||4800||5600||3600||4000|
|IV (28+ Persons)||>~9600||>~11200||>~7200||>~8000|
Full details are set out in the fee schedule which is issued by the Board.
