  • Paying retention fees in instalments... finally!

    Just spotted this on another site, we can finally pay our fees by quarterly direct debit. Have to get in quick though, the DD mandates have to be sent in by the 12th December to stage payments for 2009.

    At last, as you say. But could this change now possibly be due to the fact that those who pay by direct debit invariably stay in an organisation a year longer than they intend?
    ....just my opinion

          I for one am truely glad about the paying in instalments option (though puzzled as to the lack of monthly d.d. option). And the reduced fees. And no I'm not a lazy pharmacist, nor a useless one; just not working at the mo for health reasons.
          Think I'm probably the poorest pharmacist in the country!! Still, gives me some time to catch up on my cpd...

              Part of the 'lets friendly up the RPSGB' to try and keep some members initiative I expect.
              This simply wasn't possible a two or three years ago as they wouldn't be able to budge properly.

              How times change.

              If you find you have read something that has upset or offended you an anyway please unread it at once.

                If I fill out the direct debit quarterly form and send it off, can I make my declaration on-line or do I have to send off the declaration form I got in the post with the direct debit form?

                I hate forms!!!!!!!

                  is the retention fee different than the RPSGB practicing fee?
                  so employer pays for which one, and how much they cost?
                  thanks in advance

                    I would bet my mortgage (massive after an expensive divorce!) that fees to the GPhC will be payable on the "nail" with no instalments allowed.

                    The RPSGB will not be so restrictive for obvious reasons.

                    Raoul, the retention fee is sometimes paid for by an employer but there is no obligation for an employer to do so. It is, as you suggest the fee required to practice.

                      For anybody who filled in a direct-debit form to pay the RPSGB quarterly - have you had any money taken from your account??

                      I posted my declaration & the direct-debit form to the RPSGB in early Dec and have not heard anything and they haven't taken any money from my account either.

                        The money came out of my account on the 8th Jan, seem to recall getting confirmation through the post in December as well.

                          Yep, it came out on the 9th Jan. Though I haven't had a confirmation letter like Part Timer above.

                            I might *not* have had confirmation, might be thinking of something else. Money's definitely gone though.

                              I sent my form in by first class mail a week before the cut-off date and got it back three weeks later telling me I was too late and would have to pay it all in one go. I suspect it probably spent several days floating around the Society's mail system - sadly it wasn't stamped with a date of receipt so I can't prove anything!
