How do we calculate Remaining Contract Charges for Mobile?
  1.  

    we add together all outstanding monthly (or other periodic) charges for the remainder of your minimum term, factoring in any recurring monthly discount to which you are entitled, calculated at a daily rate

  2.  

    we then deduct VAT at the prevailing rate

  3.  

    we then deduct 4% for early receipt of payment to get the final charge you owe us

  4.  

    finally, we add VAT at the prevailing rate to get the final charge

See below examples of Remaining Contract Charges.

  1.  

    example 1 – you have a monthly recurring plan at £30 a month, with three months left. We multiply £30 by three, totalling £90. We then take VAT off that figure leaving £75. Then we take 4% off that figure and add VAT to get the final Remaining Contract Charge of £86.40

  2.  

    example 2 – you have a monthly recurring contract at £45 a month, with six and a half months left. You also have a monthly recurring discount of £10. We multiply £35 (£45-£10) by six and a half totalling £227.50. We then take VAT off that figure leaving it at £189.58. We then take 4% off that figure and add VAT to get the final Remaining Contract Charge of £218.40.

How do we calculate Early Cancellation Charges for EE Broadband?
  1.  

    we add together all outstanding monthly (or other periodic) charges, excluding VAT. If you have a monthly recurring subscription discount, we will take that into account

  2.  

    we then reduce the charge to take account of any costs we save as a result of you leaving early, such as wholesale costs where applicable 

  3.  

    we then take off 4% for early receipt 

  4.  

    we then multiply this by the remainder of your minimum term

  5.  

    finally, we add VAT at the prevailing rate to get the final cancellation charge

See below examples of Early Cancellation Charges.

    example 1 – you are on the Standard Broadband plan at £31 a month, with a £12 monthly recurring discount which means you are paying £19 a month. You cancel with two months left in your minimum term:

    - we take off the VAT leaving £15.83
    - we take off the costs we save (for example, £10.49 per month) leaving £5.13
    - we then take off 4% for early receipt, making £5.13
    - we multiply this by the two months to get £10.26
    - finally we add VAT to get an Early Cancellation Charge of £12.31

  2.  

    example 2 – you are on the Fibre Broadband plan at £36 a month, with an £11 monthly discount, which means you are playing £25 a month. You cancel with six months left in your minimum term:
