A‑X, 10.1.3 Insignificant amounts - Guidelines for Examination
Insignificant amounts 

Where the sum paid is larger than the fee, the excess will not be refunded if the amount is insignificant and the party concerned has not expressly requested a refund. It has been decided that any amount up to EUR 10 constitutes an insignificant amount (Art. 1 of the Decision of the President of the EPO dated 12 July 2007, Special edition No. 3, OJ EPO 2007, M.3).
