Fee Structure 2018

Fees cover your EVA Membership for one calendar year, with all fees required to be paid at the beginning of the year in question. For those who join during the year, the fee is calculated pro-rata for the remaining calendar months of the year, and this fee must be paid by the end of your first month.

•    For Direct Members the annual fee is calculated as a proportion of your company’s turnover
      in the European Coffee Service and Vending sector. Annual fees therefore range from
      €6,733 to a maximum of €21,548. 

•    Supportive Members are required to pay a fixed fee annually irrespective of the turnover of
      your company. The fee for Supportive Members is €6,733.

•    For Supportive Members (National Operators), the Annual fee is only €408.

•    For Full Members (National Associations), the fee increases annually for the first 3 years
      from €1,051 to a maximum of €3,677.

•    There is no fee to join the EVA as an Associate Member (only available to other Associations in related industries).

The Executive Committee (EC) makes the final decision on who should be accepted as a Member.

All fees shown are for 2018, and are automatically adjusted yearly in line with the Belgian inflation rate, as published by Eurostat.
