Refunds

Refunds will be issued to registrants who apply for retention of their registration and subsequently decide to retire or withdraw from the register, provided that notification is received by 31 March (ie the end of the preceding registration year). If your application and payment has already been processed, your payment will be refunded minus an administration charge of £30.

Refunds will also be issued to registrants who pay by direct debit but are removed from the register for failure to apply for retention of registration. Refunds will normally be issued one month after the date of removal from the register. Registrants restoring to the register prior to this date will have the option to pay only the additional restoration fee.

No refunds will be issued to registrants whose payment is processed on the basis of incorrect information supplied with the application for registration, retention or restoration, including where a registrant falsely confirms having met the CET requirement.

No refunds will be issued to registrants who are retained on the register during the course of the registration year (ie after 1 April), irrespective of whether or not a registrant has been practising during the relevant period.
