Applicant Paid Fee (APF)

The applicant pays the fee to the employment agency upon placement in a permanent job. APF business was common in the early years of permanent placement, but now accounts for a very small portion of total placement revenue. (See also: Employer Paid Fee.) In most European countries, applicant paid fees are legally forbidden for the assignment of temporary workers, except in case of additional training or for CV-drafting services.
