The renewal fee is £180 for two years. If you are a new UK graduate from a HCPC approved course, the fee you will pay for the first two 'professional years' is reduced by 50 per cent to £90.
The amount you are personally required to pay is indicated when we invite you to renew your registration.
How to pay
Renewal fees can be paid in one payment or multiple payments, through a number of methods:
- Online, when renewing your registration through your online account
- Incrementally via direct debit
- By cheque, money/postal order or bankers' draft
Paying by direct debit allows you to spread the cost of registration over the two-year registration cycle. Your fee will be taken from your bank account though four separate instalments of £45 (or less for the first two years if you are receiving the reduced rate), at the beginning of your renewal period.
To set up a direct debit, fill in the direct debit instruction and send it, by post, to the Registration department at the address below.
As well as online and direct debit, you can choose to pay our fee by cheque, money/postal order or by bankers' draft.
These payments must be made in UK sterling and drawn on a bank based in the United Kingdom (UK). Cheques must be crossed and made payable to 'Health and Care Professions Council'. Please write your full name and HCPC registration number on the reverse side of your payment and ensure that it is not post-dated.
After posting these, please allow at least five working days for your payment to reach us, or ten working days if sending from outside the UK.

When to pay
Renewal fees are due by the end of your renewal window. If your payment has not been received by this date, your registration will lapse.
If you don't pay
If you do not renew your registration, your name will be removed from the register and you will be asked to pay a readmission fee of £225 to become registered again. This fee will include the first year of registration.
We will not charge a readmission fee if we receive an application for readmission within one month of the date your registration lapses. However, you will still need to complete the readmission form and pay the registration fee.
