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 and payments 2023/24

Below are details of changes for the 2023/24 financial year as follows:

  • Licence fees are set to recover the cost of regulation and despite every possible efficiency being made this cost has risen.  The resulting increase in total fees recovered is 4.1%. 
  • There has been little or no change to the fee levels for Anatomy, Public Display and Research sectors.
  • Increases in Human Application, OTD and Post Mortem sectors have been capped at 6% or lower.
  • All fee increases remain below annual Consumer Price Index rate of inflation published by the Office for National Statistics in September 2022, when the revised fees were proposed.
