The price of a GS1 Company Prefix consists of:
- one-time granting fee, which is determined by the GS1 Company Prefix to be ordered (table 1), and
- usage fee paid annually, which depends on the company's turnover (table 2).
In connection with the order of a GS1 Company Prefix, the granting fee and the usage fee portion of that year (remaining full months) will be invoiced. For example, if you order in May, you will pay the granting fee in full and a 7-month portion of the usage fee (June-December).
For future years, the invoicing period for usage fees is the calendar year, and they are invoiced one year in advance in January. The usage fee must be paid as long as the GS1 Company Prefix is used.
