(*) Annual Practising Certificate Fee
 
A quarterly prorata and refund annual practising certificate (APC) fee policy is in place.
 
Council fees are based on cost recovery. As such it is appropriate that:
- part time practitioners are charged the same APC fee as full time practitioners given the costs to the Council remain the same regardless of whether or not the veterinarian is working in a full or part-time capacity
- those who commence or cease practise during the year are charged a reduced APC fee given the shorter registration period and consequent reduced costs to Council
- a fee of $56 is charged to cover the additional staff time involved in administering pro rata APC fees or refunds
 
Pro rata APC fee for those registering during the year
See fees above. The fee charged is apportioned on a quarterly basis and includes an administrative fee of $56.
 
Reduced fees for those ceasing practice during the practising year
It is not feasible to implement a prospective pro rata APC fee for those proposing to cease practise part way through a practising year.
Rather such applicants are required to pay the full fee up front, and then seek a refund within 4 weeks of ceasing practice.
The onus will be on veterinarians to apply for a refund.
The amount refunded will be calculated on a quarterly basis and will include an administrative fee of $56.
 
Those ceasing practice between January and March, the last quarter of the practising year, are not eligible for a refund. For those ceasing practice before this time the refund will be as follows:
 
For the 2017 - 2018 year:
April 2017 – June 2017 $363.25
July 2017 – September 2017 $223.50
October 2017 – December 2017 $83.75
