(2) The fee payable by virtue of paragraph (1) shall be calculated by multiplying the sum of £1,025, less the sum paid by the holder of the authorisation under Article 352 of the 1989 Order when he applied for his authorisation, by the number of days in the period starting with the commencement date and ending on 31st December 2006 and dividing the result by 365.
