Costs and refunds

There is a processing fee for applying to give up your registration. If we receive your application:

  • before your annual retention fee (ARF) is due, we will refund any unused part of your ARF.
  • after your ARF is due, you will have to pay the outstanding balance before we can end your registration.

Your ARF stops accruing once we receive your application. We will then let you know whether you are due a refund or owe us any outstanding fee. 

You can choose a preferred end date up to three months in the future but we cannot backdate your application.

Please see our fees page for current fees.
