Why have fees increased?
To continue to deliver support services to our 20,000 plus members in Australia, including, we need to continue to provide appropriate funding across our operational activities. This funding comes from membership and services fees. As inflation and the cost of doing business rises, we must adjust our membership and services fees to ensure appropriate funding across our operational areas to maintain our service levels.
Why has GS1 increased fees as a Not-for-Profit?
As a Not-for-Profit organisation GS1 Australia does not seek to make a profit from operational activities, however, we still need to cover the costs of running the organisation and delivering services to our members. Membership and Services fees are the only sources of revenue to fund our operational activities.
I am only using a few numbers, why are the fees so high?
accept your payment before AR Invoice is raised (an invoice will have to be manually raised) & allocate payment to your invoice once it is issued. The amount will be based on a quote. This can only occur as an exception with management approval.
Whilst you may not be using the numbers directly on your products, these numbers that have been allocated to you and are reserved in your name. If you do not require a number range that has been issued to you, you can cancel the use of that range but be aware that means you lose all ongoing rights to use any numbers within that range and these numbers will revert back to GS1 Australia.
