The levy will be calculated based on the latest income declared to the Authority. An intermediary who was authorised for the first time in 2008 must supply a completed Self Declaration of Income form to the Authority. This declaration should cover the period from the date of their authorisation to 31 December 2008.An intermediary can only submit an amended Self Declaration of Income during the funding year for which they wish the updated declaration to apply.For the purposes of this part of the Schedule (Category C only) income is defined as: The total income generated by each authorised intermediary from regulated activity undertaken. This includes:•All commissions and any other income derived from product producers •All payments and amounts received from individuals or companies in relation to services or advice provided in relation to regulated financial services •Any other income derived from regulated activities (but not including interest earned by an

entity on credit bank balances held in their own name). On receipt of the levy notice for 2009 an intermediary should determine whether or not they should update the self-declaration that they submitted to the Authority for the calculation of the 2009 levy. If the income figure for a more recent financial year is available, a new declaration should be made if this income figure would result in the intermediary moving to a different income range in relation to the 2009 levy and therefore paying a different levy.

D1 — Designated Fund Managers
Periodic LevyA flat rate levy of €1,200 is payable by designated fund managers.
Note: In determining which of the following categories (D2–D6) an entity is categorised into, consideration is given to the most senior element of their authorisation. Therefore if the authorisation of an entity allows it to be categorised as D2 or D3, it would be categorised as D3 because ‘Portfolio Management’ is viewed as a more senior type of authorisation than ‘Receipt and Transmission of Orders’.The figure used as the tariff base in Categories D2, D3 and D5 is the turnover figure from the audited accounts for the financial year-end 2007. If the reporting period for an entity’s audited accounts year-end 2007 is greater or less than 12 months, their accounting period and turnover will be pro-rated to a twelve-month period.If a firm is newly authorised in 2007, (i.e. the relevant year for the tariff data for the 2009 levy period) the turnover figure will be extracted from the audited accounts for 2007, if available. If audited accounts for the

financial period-end 2007 were not prepared, the turnover figure from the first set of audited accounts produced, pro-rated for the period of operation in 2007, will be used.If a firm is newly authorised in 2008, the turnover that will be used to calculate the levy is the turnover figure for the period from authorisation to 31 December 2008 as reported by the firm as part of the Capital Adequacy Return.
