Regulator lauds retention-fee payment rate but 3% of professionals miss deadline
The Architects Registration Board has removed 1,100 practitioners from the professional register because they failed to pay their annual fees on time, it has revealed.
While the body lauded the “vast majority” of professionals who paid up by the December 31 deadline, it acknowledged that 3% of architects had not done so – jeopardising their right to use the title unless they promptly pay up with a £45 surcharge.
This year’s annual registration fee rose from £107 to £111 – a 3.7% hike after a four-year freeze. Those removed from the register will need to pay a £156 reinstatement fee if they want to rejoin between now and the end of March.
