AMOUNT PAYABLE
The amounts payable are calculated on the basis of the weight, quantity and material of the packaging of products placed on the market and declared in the annual statements submitted to Sociedade Ponto Verde.

There are two types of payment in the Green Dot System: the initial financial contribution that is paid on joining and results in the contract with Sociedade Ponto Verde coming into effect and the annual financial contribution paid in subsequent years.
CALCULATING THE AMOUNT PAYABLE
The way in which the amounts payable are calculated depends on the membership alternative selected (Alternative 1 or 2) and the type of statement that your company submits (detailed, simplified or minimum statement). The tables below will show you how to make the calculations.
ALTERNATIVE 1 - BACKDATED ALTERNATIVE 2 - NOT BACKDATED
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN YEAR OF JOINING (INITIAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Sum of the minimum contributions retroactive to January 1st 2017 Minimum contribution in effect in the year of joining.
100€ + 120€ + 120€ + 120€ + 120€ = 580€ 120€
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS... (ANNUAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Minimum contribution in effect in the year in question, in which case there is no adjustment as the amounts charged in each year are the real figures for that year.
Annual minimum financial contribution valid for 2021
ALTERNATIVE 1 - BACKDATED ALTERNATIVE 2 - NOT BACKDATED
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN YEAR OF JOINING (INITIAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Sum of parts:
• Multiplication of weights of packaging declared retroactive to January 1st 2017 (1)
• Multiplication of weights estimated by SPV for the year of joining (2) by GDF valid in the year of joining
Multiplication of weights estimated by SPV for the year of joining by Green Dot Fees valid in that year (1) (2)

Weights for 2020 x GDF 2020 + Weights estimated by SPV for 2021 x GDF 2021

Weights estimated by SPV for 2021 x GDF 2021
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS... (ANNUAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Multiplication of weights of packaging estimated by SPV for each year by the GDF in effect in those years (1)
There is no adjustment in this case, as the weights estimated by SPV for a certain year are considered the actual weights for that year.
Weights estimated by SPV for 2021 x GDF 2022
(1) For the Green Dot Fees to be charged, the total weight of packaging declared will automatically be divided by the materials indicated in the statement and the types of packaging, based on the history of companies in the sector to which yours belongs.
(2) SPV will automatically estimate the weights in the statement for the year of joining from the simplified statement submitted on joining, using the average growth rates for the sector to which your company belongs.
In any of the situations, the annual amount payable may not be less than the minimum contribution payable in that year.
ALTERNATIVE 1 - BACKDATED ALTERNATIVE 2 - NOT BACKDATED
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN YEAR OF JOINING (INITIAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Sum of parts:
• Multiplication of weights of packaging declared retroactive to January 1st 2017
• Multiplication of weights declared for the year prior to that of joining by the GDF valid in the year of joining
Multiplication of weights declared for the year prior to that of joining by the Green Dot Fees valid in the year of joining.
Weights of 2020 x GDF 2020 + Weights of 2020 x GDF 2021 Weights of 2020 x GDF 2021
CALCULATING CONTRIBUTION IN SUBSEQUENT YEARS... (ANNUAL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION) Sum of parts:
• Adjustment of the amount billed against previous year
• Estimate of the amount payable for the current year by multiplying the weights in the statement submitted for the previous year anterior by the GDF valid in the current year.
Adjustment of amount invoiced in 2021: (weights 2021 x GDF 2022) – (weights 2020 x GDF 2021) + Estimate for 2021: weights 2021 x GDF 2022
In any of the situations, the annual amount payable may not be less than the minimum contribution payable in that year.
