The renewal fee is £196.24 for two years (£98.12 per year)

If you are a new UK graduate from an HCPC approved course, the fee you will pay for the first two 'professional years' is reduced by 50 percent to £98.12 (£49.06 per year).

The amount you are personally required to pay is indicated when we invite you to renew your registration.

Payment options

You can choose from one of the following options to pay your renewal fee:

  • Pay the full amount of £196.24
  • Spread the cost by paying by direct debit

You can update your payment details on your online account.

Direct debit information

We will not collect your direct debit until you have completed your professional declaration.

Direct debits are taken twice a year, over the course of two years, in instalments of £49.06 (or £24.53 if you're paying the graduate rate). The first instalment will be collected either on the 1st or 15th of the month, depending on when your declaration was made.

Changes to our registration fees

On 23 February 2023 the HCPC Council agreed to the proposals to increase the annual registration fee from £98.12 to £117.74.

If approved by the UK and Scottish parliaments, the fee rise would not come into effect until the second half of 2023 at the earliest, with most professions not paying the revised fee until 2024 or 2025.
