Exchange institutions – Costs of applying for authorisation


Published: 27 February 2020

De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) charges a fee for handling applications for the authorisation of exchange institutions.

Costs of applying for authorisation

The application fee applies regardless of whether DNB approves or rejects the application. It also applies if the applicant withdraws the application in the meantime or if DNB ceases consideration during the procedure.

Application fee

The fee for consideration of an application for authorisation as an exchange institution is €4,400. This one-off fee is specified in Section 5 of the Regulation on the funding of one-off supervisory actions (Regeling bekostiging financieel toezicht eenmalige handelingen).

Fee for on-going supervision

DNB also charges exchange institutions an annual fee to cover the costs of our on-going supervision on exchange institutions.
