Your challenge with fee calculations
To refinance public cost accounting institutions, fees are regularly levied. Necessary fee calculations concern areas such as sewage, water, waste and street cleaning. The preparation of the calculations is complex and knowledge-intensive, which is why specialized consulting firms are regularly commissioned to prepare the calculations.
However, the manual execution of fee calculations with tools such as MS-Excel is time-consuming and expensive. In addition to the high consulting costs for the preparation of the calculation, the required broad database must be compiled manually by you and your employees on a regular basis and coordinated with your service provider. These work steps are time-consuming and tie up your personnel resources. The results of manual calculations are usually available to you only in the form of MS-Excel value copies and written statements. The further EDP-sided utilization of the work results, e.g. analyses over several years or long-term evaluations, cannot be realized or can only be realized at great expense. Particularly in times of digitization, a manual working method is no longer up-to-date.

Which basics have to be considered when creating fee calculations?
The relevant basis for the execution of fee calculations are in particular the local tax laws (Kommunalabgabengesetz, KAG) of the respective federal states.
What principles must be followed by public companies when charging user fees?
Principle of equivalence: Performance and costs must be in reasonable proportion.
Principle of cost recovery: The principle of cost recovery has two manifestations, the prohibition of cost overruns and the cost coverage requirement. This means that the estimated fee income may not exceed the expected costs of the institution as a whole, but should generally cover them.
Does the Fee Calculator take cost over-absorption/cost under-absorption into account?
Yes, cost over-absorption and cost under-absorption are being calculated yearly and updated over time.
Are pre/post calculations possible?
Yes, both, pre and post calculations can be created.
