In the a post-pay mode, the return of the on-board unit does not automatically mean the termination of the vehicle registration.

- The User with the post-pay terms agreement with deferred maturity terminates the registration of the vehicle in the Customer Zone.
- The User with the post-pay terms agreement with a fuel card payment contacts the Fuel Card Issuer.
- In both cases, the vehicle registration can also be terminated at the Contact Point, where the authorized person (statutory representative of the company or authorized person) will arrive.

The on-board units can be returned personally at the distribution or contact points or eventually they can be sent by post to the address (no Premid OBU!): Annex NET s.r.o., České družiny 5, 160 00 Praha 6, Czech Republic together with a duly completed claim form including complete bank details, that can be downloaded from our websites. The on-board units should be shipped by post well in advance of the expiration date. If you send the on-board unit by mail and you will need a new one again in shorter time than 6 months, there will be a risk that the return process of your on board unit will not be finished yet and new registration of your vehicle at that time will not be possible. If you are sending multiple Onboard Units at once, pack them so that they do not come into physical contact with each other during transport. This will prevent possible damage to the devices. We do not recommend sending on-board units outside of the European Union due to the customs duties. Pre-pay units for which funds were paid in cash are recommended to be returned in person at service points.
