This is not a trick or a way to avoid paying the increase that will now be due once the BPR goes up.
This advance was as a result of the LPOG's request for an immediate relief package to help Licensees. This payment will provide some much needed relief for Licensees who have been under financial stress for so long. So if you find a large sum of money in your bank today, relax, it is yours. It is an advance payment of 75% on your POB payment that was paid to you last year, and the rest, including the increase due to the increase in the BPR will be finalized in the normal payment cycle when the POB renewals are completed.
