All fees are payable in advance: applications will not be processed unless fees have been paid in full. All fees are reviewed annually.


Initial application for registration

The initial application fee for one language is £220.00 (£183.33 plus VAT) for new applications. This fee includes the first year's registration fee if successful.

If your application is unsuccessful you will receive a refund of £135.10 and NRPSI will keep the balance as the administration fee for reviewing the initial application.

Annual renewal

Registrations must be renewed annually and the annual registration fee is £220.00 (including VAT) for renewals from September 2017.

If your application for renewal is unsuccessful you will receive a refund of £135.10 and NRPSI will keep the balance as the administration fee for reviewing the renewal application.

Additional languages

Interpreters applying for the first time to add a language to their record will need to pay a one-off additional language fee of £76.50 (including VAT) for each additional language. Note that the annual renewal fee is the same, regardless of the number of languages registered.

If your application for an additional language is rejected you will receive a refund of £20.00 and NRPSI will keep the balance as the administration fee for reviewing the additional language application.

Lapsed registrations and refunds

If you have been off the Register for more than 3 months then you can apply for reinstatement and a reinstatement fee of £76.50 (including VAT) will be required in addition to the annual renewal fee.

If you decide to leave the Register once you have been accepted then fees are non-refundable. Partial refunds can only be made, on request, to the estate of deceased Registrants and to Registrants who become pregnant during the registration year. Please contact admin@nrpsi.org.uk for the evidence we will require.

Claiming tax relief

Registrants may claim tax relief from the HMRC on their NRPSI registration fee (see letter Registrants can provide to HMRC as evidence).
