If you have upgraded your scoring software within the last six months or so, you will have noticed that there are now many options available in the P2P charge rate box, whereas previously you could only choose between normal and P2P exempt. There are various reasons for this:
Depending on the Scoring Software that you use, you will normally select the charge rate whenever you set up a new event, but you should also be able to amend this retrospectively if you realise you have chosen the wrong one! Furthermore, please note that you can now still change it in the Clubs Members Area on the EBU website at the point at which you upload your P2P file.
The following table lists the charge rate codes that are applicable to clubs.
|02||Null Session. Used only for sessions that are not played e.g. to award Master Points for a final ladder. No charge will be made and no sessions credited to the participants i.e. this will will not form a credit for a magazine point.|
|03||A clubs annual (once per EBU financial year) free session e.g. for a Christmas party or AGM. We dont need further details, but a meaningful description would be helpful if there are any queries.|
|04||Teaching/supervised play session where 16 or fewer boards are played. Free of charge.|
|06||Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs. Free of charge.|
|10||Normal P2P club session charged at the standard EBU rate for the date it was played, plus any county charges.|
|22||Approved novice session. Half the P2P price.|
Rates charged are those in force when the session was played. For example, a club session played on 31/03/2011 is charged at the 2010/11 rate (29p) regardless of when the session is actually submitted to us.
