6. The prize money will be transferred to the bank accounts of the members of the winning teams, i.e. on a bank account of a natural and not a legal person, in a net amount. The net amount is the gross amount minus personal income tax paid. The personal income tax on the prize money will be paid by Združenje Management Group directly to the Slovenian Tax Authorities (FURS) in accordance with the Slovenian Personal Income Tax Act (PIT-2). The tax will be paid before the prize money is transferred to the winner's bank account.

7. The natural person that has the right to receive the prize money needs to fill in a special form, which they will receive on April 2, 2023 from the organizers via email. They will give the necessary and correct data about their bank account on which they want to receive the prize money.
