Consolidated invoice for other fees* and SEPA regulations 

Consolidated invoice for other fees* and SEPA regulations 

*except application, tuition and bus fees

The Single European Payments Area (SEPA) regulation has been implemented. The SEPA regulation is the harmonisation between payments processes. Practically, this means that the direct debit will be managed by the International School of Brussels and no longer by your bank.

For all new direct debits, the SEPA mandate is the only valid form. This SEPA mandate will only be issued by our Admission or our Finance department because the SEPA mandate must have a unique reference number. The unique reference number will be mentioned on your consolidated invoice.

You will be invoiced five times (end of October, December, February, April, June) for all costs except application, tuition and bus fees. The consolidated invoice will be submitted for payment five working days following the invoice date.

For further information regarding the SEPA implementation please visit www.sepabelgium.be or contact Véronique Collard (+32 (0)2 661 42 26) or Dorcyna Rugamba (+32 (0)2 661 42 28) in the finance office.

Bus Fees

Bus Fees

The ISB bus service is available for children as from Kindergarten, although Pre-Kindergarten children are allowed on the bus when they are accompanied by older siblings. There is no reimbursement of bus fees due to an inability to use the service for whatever reason. For families who would otherwise find it difficult to pay the annual bus fee, ISB offers a payment plan to spread the cost of the bus service across each school year. Please contact the Finance Office for more information.

Bus fees for the school year are as follows:

Return trip 1,900 Euro
One way only 1,430 Euro
