Vets reminded to pay renewal fees or be removed from Register
1 May 2014
We are reminding veterinary surgeons who have not yet paid their renewal fees that they will be taken off the Register if they do not pay on or before 31 May.
The deadline for paying renewal fees was 17 April and any veterinary surgeons who have not yet paid will have an additional late payment fee as well as the registration renewal fee to pay.
The 1,000 or so veterinary surgeons who have not yet paid have been sent a final reminder and will be removed from the Register as of 1 June if they fail to renew their registration.
Payments can be made by credit card via the RCVS ‘My Account’ area using the login credentials which were sent to each veterinary surgeon in February. If you have have lost, or misplaced, these please contact email@example.com
Fees can also be paid by cheque, bank draft or credit card via the registration reminder form sent in the post. The form also has details of how to pay by bank transfer.
If you have received the registration reminder letter but believe that you, or your employer, have already paid the fee please contact our Finance Department for clarification on 020 7202 0723.
Otherwise, we will send confirmation when payment has been received and also when details have been updated.
As part of the renewal process, veterinary surgeons are asked to confirm that their details on the Register are correct, including membership category and correspondence details.
If you are in the ‘UK Practising’ or ‘Practising outside the UK’ membership categories, you should also confirm – via the registration renewal form or the online My Account area – that you are compliant with the requirements for continuing professional development (CPD) of 105 hours over three years.
Vets with any cautions, convictions or adverse findings against them dating from 1 January 2006 onwards, should also declare them. For further details on these declarations, please visit www.rcvs.org.uk/convictions.
If you have any concerns or questions about renewing your registration you can also contact our Registration Department on 020 7202 0707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
