NARCH - COVID 19 – UPDATE NO 2
REDUCTION IN NARCH ANNUAL REGISTRATION FEES
In light of the extraordinary circumstances that are affecting us all, the NARCH Management Committee have agreed that all active RCH’s will have their annual registration renewal fee reduced from £115 to £85. Additionally, where the registration renewal date falls in the period 24th March 2020 to 24th June 2020 inclusive, a 3-month fee payment holiday will be granted.

HOW WILL THIS WORK IN PRACTICE?
For those RCH’s whose annual registration renewal date falls in the period 24th March 2020 to 24th June 2020 inclusive, a 3-month fee payment holiday will be granted. Once a 3-month period has elapsed from the date of their original registration renewal date, NARCH will send an invoice to the RCH for the reduced sum of £85. This method ensures that all RCH’s retain their same annual registration renewal date.
For all RCH’s with a renewal date falling in the period 25th June 2020 up to and including 23rd March 2021, NARCH will send an invoice for the reduced annual registration renewal fee of £85.
Should any further periods of lockdown be put in place by the Government after 24th June 2020, up to and including 23rd March 2021 as a result of Covid-19, the NARCH Management Committee will review matters and advise accordingly.

DO RCH’s NEED TO ALTER THEIR AUTOMATIC PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS WITH PAYPAL?
No action will be required from RCH’s.  All RCH’s who have a re-occurring automatic payment instruction in place with PayPal will receive a notification from PayPal that their instruction has been temporarily suspended. After 23rd March 2021, NARCH will ensure that all re-occurring automatic payment instructions are re-instated.

TO WHOM WILL THE REDUCED ANNUAL FEE APPLY 
Please note that the reduced annual fee of £85 and the 3-month fee payment holiday, will only apply to those RCH’s whose names appear on the NARCH Register and will not apply to those RCH’s who are suspended from the NARCH Register.
