APL calculation rules are quite complex.

The base formula is as follows: APL = L + C-PP - 5 euros.
L: monthly rent paid principal included in the limit of the ceiling above.
C: flat rate charges
PP: personal participation of household in housing expenditure.

This personal involvement is itself calculated using the following formula: PP = P0 + Tp x Rp.
P0: minimum participation of the tenant (35.02 euros).
Tp: personal participation rate in percentage (%).
Rp difference between the resources of the recipient and a lump sum.
