Pricing preferences for smaller companies

Small and medium sized companies are heavily exploited by gonvernments and banks. These are some more good reasons to grant small and medium-sized companies some license pricing privileges.

VSE - Very Small Enterprises

SME - Small or Medium Enterprises as defined by the EU

This is our definition for companies, which meet these requirements:

  • less than 10 employees
  • and has an annual turnover not exceeding
    3 million Euro

    (unless these are financial investors, such as banks or venture capitalists).

If one of these conditions is NOT met one is NOT a VSE in our terms.

The term SME has been defined by the EU. An SME is one which:

  • has fewer than 250 employees

    • an annual balance-sheet total not exceeding 27 million Euro
