The subscription fee should be paid in advance on or before the 25th of the first month for the concerned period.

It means that a subscriber paying the fee on the 25th day of the month fulfils the statutory obligation in a timely manner. It is the day on which the subscriber makes the payment that is valid rather than the day on which the bank account of Poczta Polska S.A. is credited. If the fee paid by a subscriber on the 25th day of the month is received in the account on the 26th or on the 27th, the post office may not calculate default interest thereon.

PAYMENT OF SUBSCRIPTION FEES

The subscription fees for using radio and television sets are collected in order to enable the public radio and television broadcasting entities to pursue their public mission.
