Our practice is moving premises, do we need to register again?

Yes, if you move your practice to new premises, you need to submit a registration application for the new premises and pay the £35 fee. It is not possible to transfer registration between premises. The new premises must be registered before any storage or supply of veterinary medicines takes place.

If you are in the Practice Standards Scheme, your accreditation will not be transferred to the new premises. Your new premises will need to make an application to join the Scheme.

You will also need to close the premises you are moving from, please complete the Register of Veterinary Practice Premises Removal Form (see the 'Related documents' box below).

If you have a Direct Debit set up to pay your annual veterinary practice premises fee please ensure you cancel this with your bank and set up a new one using your new registration number.
