In order to practice as a SQP, SQPs must sit on a Register and fulfil the requirements of their Regulator, including meeting their CPD obligations.

The Vetpol Register runs on a calendar year from January to December and costs £60+VAT. The following describes our payment policy and process:

For those SQPs requiring an invoice for annual registration fees, this will be issued mid of October of the preceding year and is payable within one month of invoice date, ie by mid November. To avoid late payment fees, the invoice should be paid no later than the end of the 2nd week in December. Late payment fees are charged at 10% of the value of the invoice.

For those purchasing annual registration online, a series of automatic reminders will be sent from the beginning of November. SQPs have until the end of December in which to purchase the following years’ registration.

Those SQPs who have not paid in full by 1st January will be removed from the SQP Register rendering them unable to legally practice as a SQP. 

Payments made after January 1st will incur an additional re-registration fee of £60+VAT, payable in addition to the standard registration fee.
