[arin-discuss] ARIN billing practice

I think Heather's point is if they have to pay first and last year up front then they basically cover the 1 year period when ARIN will not reissue the space. My question would be what would keep them from notifying ARIN and getting the refund?

ARIN already does charge new members first year's dues in advance (before 
you get your initial allocation).  Then, you get billed a year later, 
effectively paying in advance for the following year.
