The annual fee is a recurring fee to be paid per organisation, i.e. customer account, while its EPDs remains published and registered. As that, the annual fee is independent of the number of EPDs registered by the organisation.

Annual fees after the first, partial calendar year are then normally invoiced at the beginning of the year.
