According to the Presidential Decree #240 " On payment for radio-frequency spectrum usage" signed on April 18, 2006, an annual payment for radio frequencies is to be introduced in Belarus after January 1, 2006.

Annual and nonrecurrent rates of pay are calculated from 1 Eur for 1MHz frequency used during a year by one radio electronic device covering 1 square km. The rate also depends on the purpose of broadcasting, technologies used, emission band, commercial value, service area, location and time.

Annual payment for frequencies used by governmental institutions, and national security, defense, legal order protection bodies and emergency services totals 100 Eur.

Annual and nonrecurrent payments are to be transferred to the national budget income.
