A pro-rata annual fee is payable by new applicants. To obtain the fee, take the number of calendar days, including the date of admission to trading up to and including 31 December 2022, divide this number by 365 (366 during a leap year) and multiply the quotient by the annual fee calculated. 

Where admission to trading occurs after 30 September 2021, the market capitalisation used in the above calculation is the market capitalisation of the securities at the time of admission.

No pro-rata annual fee is payable by the enlarged entity admitted to AIM following a reverse takeover under Rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies. 

No additional pro-rata annual fee is payable by companies transferring between London Stock Exchange markets
