Competitive challenges submitted to NAD by BBB National Programs National Partners shall be filed with a check, made payable to BBB National Programs, Inc., in the amount of $25,000.
Competitive challenges submitted to NAD by businesses that are not BBB National Programs National Partners shall be filed with a check, made payable to BBB National Programs, Inc., for:
$10,000 if the challenger's gross annual revenue is less than $250M
$30,000 if the challenger’s gross annual revenue is less than $5B
$35,000 if the challenger’s gross annual revenue is over $5B
$25,000 for all NARB filings
The filing fee shall be accompanied by a statement indicating the category into which the challenger’s revenues fall. In the case of a challenge filed by a subsidiary, the filing fee is determined by the gross annual revenue of the parent company.
If a case is opened but subsequently closed administratively for any reason other than consent of the parties pursuant to Section 2.2(E), fifty percent of the filing fee will be refunded.
This filing fee change creates a new category, the under $250 million category, to encourage participation from small businesses and strengthen industry self-regulation. Filing fee waivers or partial waivers are still available if economic hardship is demonstrated.
