The current Practice Fee Regulations can be found here.
The practice fees are approved each year by the Legal Services Board.
The practice fees for 2021 are shown below. They remain at the same level as for 2020. Practice fees for previous years are available on request.
Fees are for the year from 1 January. Fees are not pro rated but practice fees will be waived if an application for registration is received on or after 1 November in each calendar year.
We do not require any additional payment (and nor do we give refunds) if your practice fee type changes during the year or if you resign from the register.
