New method of annuity payment

LATS informs that as of this year it provides a new method of payment of the annuities, which can now be done by credit card using PayPal. Due to the change in the payment system, the deadline for the discharge of the annuity has been extended to April 30th.

Used in thousands of digital transactions, PayPal online payment system is very simple and safe to use. Members who do not have a PayPal account can create it at the time of payment. Just select the option create new account for free and include the requested information. To use PayPal, just select credit card/PayPal and include the account details.
