Organisations we regulate

Every registered provider must pay fees each year.

The fees registered providers pay enable us to fulfil our purpose of making sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care, and encouraging services to improve. These fees fund our statutory functions, enabling us to register, monitor, inspect and rate providers, and to carry out civil or criminal enforcement when necessary.

Fees cover all the costs of:

  • initial registration
  • changes to your registration, and
  • our activities associated with monitoring, inspection and rating.

Your fees depend on the:

  • type of services you provide, and
  • the scale of services.

Your annual fees cover all your locations that are registered on your anniversary date. The amount of fees and anniversary date are shown on your invoice.

See provider fees payable as a guide to what you might need to pay.

Non-payment of fees is a reason why we may cancel a registered provider’s registration.

Our fees scheme

Our current fees scheme applies to fees due from 1 April 2019.

We hold a public consultation whenever we propose to alter fees. We consider all responses to a consultation then propose a new fees scheme. If the Secretary of State consents, the proposed scheme takes effect.
