How and when to apply for a discount
Fixed term discount
You don't apply for this discount – it's automatically applied to your fee. It's calculated when you make your initial application for registration online.
Apply for income discount
You can apply for income discount:
- three months before an annual retention fee year begins
- any time during the annual retention fee year
- within three months of the annual retention fee year ending.
For example: Your annual retention fee date is 1 August. You’re applying for the year 2021–22. The earliest you can apply is 1 May 2021. The latest you can apply is 31 October 2022.
You can also contact us by telephone. A contact centre adviser will process an application for you over the phone.
