There are two fees involved in the registration scheme:

  • An application fee of £200, which is required to cover the costs of administration and the review of applications. This fee applies for each application including where previous applications had been refused or deferred. The fee also includes the first full year of accredited membership. As a not-for-profit organisation, SoBRA aims to ensure this fee reflects only necessary expenses involved in the administration and review of applications.
  • An annual membership fee of either £50 or £35 (non-for-profit organisation employees only), which includes your annual SoBRA membership as well as the ongoing scheme administration costs.
  • Refund Policy: As the application fees are to cover administration and scrutineer costs, SoBRA will refund 25% of your fee should your application not proceed to interview stage
