Please note, new registrants applying to register with the RCVS should wait until they have submitted their application for registration before making a payment.

Payments by organisations

Where employers have agreed to pay annual fees on behalf of their employees, they should pay these fees in bulk via a bank transfer using the bank details below. Even where an employer is paying these fees, it remains the individual’s responsibility to ensure that the correct fee is paid by the due date.

Registered Veterinary Practices Premises (RVPP) may be paid through MyAccount or via bank transfer.

Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) fees should be paid via bank transfer using the details below.

Via bank transfer

All bank transfers must be clearly referenced and accompanied by a remittance slip emailed to finance@rcvs.org.uk on, or before, the payment date. All remittances should include a detailed breakdown of the payment. Remittances for individual fees must include the veterinary surgeon’s or veterinary nurse’s full name and RCVS ID or registration number to enable allocation to their RCVS account.

Please note, all international banking charges are borne by the payee, including the international fees levied by our bank Lloyds, which is approximately £7 per transaction.
