Today ARIN implemented a new Resource Transfer fee, as previously announced on 19 December 2016 (https://www.arin.net/vault/announcements/2016/20161219.html). Beginning today, ARIN will collect a $300 USD, non-refundable processing fee for each transfer request of Internet number resources, including:
- 8.2 Merger, Acquisition, and Reorganization transfers; billed to the source (or legal successor) organization.
- 8.3 Transfers to Specified Recipients within the ARIN region, billed to the source-side organization. The Transfer processing fee is waived when the subject resources are under an existing Registration Services Plan (RSP), and no specific transfer processing fee will be charged to the recipient-side organization.
- 8.4 Inter-RIR Transfers to Specified Recipients, a fee is billed to the source-side organization if within the ARIN region. This transfer processing fee is waived when the subject resources are under an existing Registration Services Plan (RSP). No specific transfer processing fee will be charged to recipient-side organizations.
This fee will be invoiced to the source organization's billing Point of Contact (POC) and are to be paid before request evaluation begins. It replaces the $500 resource transfer fee on the 2016 fee schedule (https://www.arin.net/fees/fee_schedule.html#resource_transfers). Note that this fee change will only affect transfer requests submitted on or after 1 January 2017. For each transfer request of Internet number resources submitted before that date, the recipient organization will pay the 2016 transfer fee of $500 and may need to execute the Registration Services Agreement if a current version is not on file.
Transferred resources will be subject to annual fees as stipulated by the fee schedule, including registry maintenance fees or corresponding Registration Services Plan. Additional fees may apply based on the status of the source or recipient organization at the time of transfer.
This change arose out of a community consultation, which is available for review at:
