From this year on, the obligation to pay the waste disposal fee applies newly also to all the foreigners staying in the area of Brno for more than 90 days. This local fee does not relate in any way to the payment for the accommodation. SKM has no futher information concerning the waste disposal fee. All the information can be found or requested for on the web of Brno Municipal Government (Magistrát města Brna). FAQ on the Brno Municipal Governemt web.
Note for foreign students: „Confirmation of providing the accommodation“ either for the purpose of granting a visa or prolonging it is to be written out only on the basis of a written application sent by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org at least 2 working days before your visit at OAMP or the Embassy of the Czech Republic in your country. We send the confirmation by data box to relevant authorities only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!!!!!!!!
Thus, ask for your confirmation in time!!!!!
The dormitory fee is to be paid in advance in the relevant month in accordance with the SUPO timetable (nevertheless, the money should be credited to the SUPO account on 10th day of the month).
For the check-ins from 19th to 20th September there is only one due date off the timetable 28th September 2015.
When checking in throughout the month, the dormitory fee is due to 10th day from the check-in. In addition to the dormitory fee, the accommodation deposit is to be paid too in the first month. The accommodation deposit is a cash advance for the last month according to the accommodation contract (the deposit will be automatically credited with the last month of the accommodation). Further payment information - how to pay, can be found in Settlement of the deposit and dormitory fee instructions.
Thus in September you are to pay the adequate amount of money for a part of September + the accommodation deposit minus the reservation deposit. If you have a direct debit, it is necessary to set a sufficient limit.
Provided that you check in later than on the date stated in the contract, no matter whether within 27th September or later on the basis of the reservation, a compensation for the late check-in will be charged to you, not the dormitory fee.
