ATCP 100.13(1)(d)

(b) took effect, caused the sum of the milk contractor's current ratio assessment rate under s. ATCP 100.135 (2) and debt to equity ratio assessment rate under s. ATCP 100.135 (4), to increase by at least 100% compared to the preceding license year.

ATCP 100.13(1)(e)
(e) The milk contractor's annual financial statements, for the fiscal years immediately preceding and immediately following the fiscal year in which the merger or acquisition under par.

The department shall apportion the credit, pro rata, against the quarterly assessment installments required of the milk contractor under s. ATCP 100.135 (7) in that next license year. If the credit exceeds the total assessment required of the milk contractor in that next license year, the department shall credit the balance in the same fashion against assessments required of the milk contractor in subsequent consecutive license years, except that the department may not grant a credit in more than 4 subsequent license years.

ATCP 100.13(3)(b)
