Based on your application or based on your Certificate or Approval under the Agency’s surveillance, you will receive an invoice notifying you of the fee to be paid. (EASA invoices feature the word “Invoice” in the title and an eight-digit document number starting with 900). Please do not pay anything before you have received such an invoice. The time frame for the payment is 30 days as from the date of the invoice.
When invoices are issued depends on the nature of the fee:
- tasks which give rise to the payment of a flat fee: after receipt of the application at EASA;.
- tasks which give rise to payment of fees on an hourly basis: invoicing is either on a quarterly basis or prior to the issuance of the certificate or approval document.
- In some cases a pre-payment is required before the project can start or continue; in the case of hourly charging the invoice is based on the estimated number of working hours.
