Based on your reported sailing days and section 4.9 of the insurance terms, the invoice for the year 2017 using the final premiums/rates is forwarded.
If you have chosen to receive invoices by post, the invoices are attached to this letter. Do you receive your invoices by e-mail, the invoices are forwarded in a separate mail.
As previously announced, the Board has set the final insurance premium for 2017 at 10.00 DKK per day/man – the same as the account premium, see below table.
|Product||On account 2017||Final 2017|
|Work Injury, foreign-flagged ships||10.00||10.00|
|Personal property liability||0.10||0.10|
The final contributions for 3rd parties per person/day in DKK appear from below table:
|Abbreviation||Product||On account 2017||Final 2017|
|SSB||Health insurance (international journeys)||*2.01||3.37|
|KSE||Compensation for war injuries||0.34||0.30|
|KSU||Compensation for war injuries, foreign-flagged||0.60||0.51|
|VFA||Welfare contribution, DIS||2.70||2.70|
|VFB||Welfare contribution, DAS||1.40||1.40|
|SAM||Health and safety contribution||3.32||3.32|
*1st half of 2017: 2.47; 2nd half of 2017: 0.15. Average: 1.31 DKK per person/day.
As appears, there is an increase in the cost of the health insurance compared to the charged on account amount resulting in a final premium of 3.37 DKK per person/day. The reason is that the expenses for health insurance were higher than expected.
On the contrary, the contribution for war injuries, which is collected on behalf of Danish Shipping, is decreased, as it is not technically possible to collect 110.90 DKK/year and 186.00 DKK/year as an insurance year is 360 days.
Wishing you all a good summer……
