I do not generate any revenue from the operation of my service. Do I qualify for the noncommercial rates?
In order to pay royalties as a noncommercial webcaster, a service must be one of the following:
- Exempt from taxation
- Awaiting confirmation of being granted the above exemption from an application received by the Ministry of Finance, with a commercially reasonable expectation that it will be granted
- Operated by the State or possession or any governmental entity or subordinate thereof, for exclusively public purposes
If your service does not meet one of the three above qualifications, then your service must pay as a commercial webcaster- even if your service does not generate revenue.
