8. ABF LEVIES

The schedule of fees currently in force is tabulated in below. Adhesive labels will be issued whenever these charges are varied. All payments should be made to the ABF Masterpoint Centre.

8.1 MASTERPOINTS

A masterpoint levy is billed quarterly on the total points issued by a club in all its club events. Masterpoints from Congresses and State events are billed as they are processed by the Masterpoint Centre.

8.2 CAPITATION FEE

An annual capitation fee is payable to the ABF by all clubs affiliated to the ABF through their State Association. The fee is levied on all home club members once a year, after the clubs have declared their current membership as at March 31st, and then quarterly for additional members as the clubs register new players or reactivate old ones.

An exception applies to the above for any new club that affiliates with their State Association for the first time. The ABF will waive the annual capitation fee for home club members for the first ABF registration year (12 months from 1st April, or part thereof). This exemption will only apply to newly registered home club members that have never previously been a member of the ABF Masterpoint scheme.
