Do I have to renew registration of our veterinary practice premises annually?

Yes. There is an annual fee for the registration of veterinary practice premises. £35 for each veterinary practice premises; VAT is not payable.

The registration of veterinary practice premises is due on 1 April each year. An invoice is issued for payment (up to four weeks before the due date) to those practice premises which are on the Register. If a premises is part of a practice group, the invoice will be sent to the principal premises or Head Office.

Any fees not received by 1 April, may result in the premises being removed from the Register of Veterinary Practice Premises and the supply of any medicines will need to cease immediately.

The annual fee for premises accredited under the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) includes the annual registration fee for veterinary practice premises. Premises in the Practice Standards Scheme have inspections undertaken by RCVS Assessors, not by the VMD.
