Total Trucking Management Ltd. of Calgary has designed and developed an online program to calculate IRP fees. Most jurisdictions have their own fee-calculation programs,
but this tool is especially capable while being simple to use.

IRP FeeCalc is a simple, inexpensive on-line tool for estimating your prorate fees without having to wait for the official assessment from your state/provincial licensing department. It allows users to estimate cash flow for the coming year; estimate the cost of adding or
deleting a unit from your fleet; and bill lease operators for their licensing fees.

It’s available in two versions, Canadian and U.S. The former identifies sales tax for each province and gives fees in both Canadian and U.S. dollars. The American version uses all U.S. measures — miles, pounds, and U.S. dollars, with Canadian and U.S. currency for Canadian fees.

A free 7-day trial is available. The basic plan, assuming medium usage with a maximum of 10 fleets, costs $75 a year. For high annual usage with no fleet maximum, the cost is $150/year.

Although this program will work for most operations, it’s designed with the general-freight, long-distance trucker in mind. Therefore, carriers with special hauling needs like overweight permits may need additional information not provided by the program. In that case, for example, users must check with the base jurisdiction to find out which jurisdictions allow overweight loads.

TTML principal Sandy Johnson notes that this is an estimating program only. The fees may not match exactly the government fees which will be shown on your fee notice, she adds.
