Committee on Contributions

Regular budget and Working Capital Fund

By its resolution 70/245, the General Assembly decided that the scale of assessments for the period 2016–2018 shall be based on the following elements and criteria:

           (a)      Estimates of gross national income;

           (b)      Average statistical base periods of three and six years;

           (c)      Conversion rates based on market exchange rates, except where that would cause excessive fluctuations and distortions in the income of some Member States, when price-adjusted rates of exchange or other appropriate conversion rates should be employed, taking due account of its resolution 46/221 B;

           (d)      The debt-burden approach employed in the scale of assessments for the period 2013–2015;

           (e)      A low per capita income adjustment of 80 per cent, with a threshold per capita income limit of the average per capita gross national income of all Member States for the statistical base periods;

           (f)       A minimum assessment rate of 0.001 per cent;

           (g)      A maximum assessment rate for the least developed countries of 0.01 per cent;

           (h)      A maximum assessment rate of 22 per cent;
