Paying by Direct Debit

If you want to pay by Direct Debit, you will need to set one up by the date set out in your renewal notice to make sure you can complete the process in time.

You can pay:

  • a one off annual fee
  • four equal payments every three months from the date of your renewal

We will take payments on the first working day of each month. We will send you a payment schedule to show the payments and the date(s) we will take them.

To set up a direct debit you will need to:

1. Download the correct Direct Debit mandate form

2. Fill in the form

As well as your bank details, make sure you tell us if you want to pay annually (tick 'Single payment') yor quarterly (tick 'Staged payment'). Include your name and registration number so we can match the payment instruction to your registration. Sign and date the form.

We will send you an email notice to confirm that your Direct Debit has been set up, and a payment schedule to show the payments and the date(s) we will take them.

The notice will also give you a new deadline by which you must make your renewal declarations. If you do not complete your declarations in time, the Direct Debit will not be collected and you will need to make your full registration payment using a debit or credit card.
