Fees and payments

As an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), we are funded from Grant-in-Aid from the DHSC and devolved administrations and licence fees charged to licenced establishments.

Licence fees for financial year 2024 to 2025

Below are details of changes for the 2024 to 2025 financial year as follows: 

  • Licence fees are set to recover the actual cost of regulation which, despite a continuing focus on efficiencies and best practice, has increased due to inflation.  The resulting increase in total fees recovered is 21.8%.  
  • Fee increases for Human Application, Post Mortem and the ODT (Organ Donation & Transplantation) sector were capped in 2023 to 2024. In order to ensure the actual costs are fully recovered next year, the fee increase for 2024 to 2025 will be higher than for other sectors (average fee increases: HA 24.9%; PM 22.7%; and ODT 13.6%). 
  • Fee increases for Research, Anatomy and Public Display were increased in full in 2023 to 2024 and fee increases for those sectors are all lower at 11.5% or less.
