Deadline for DCPs to pay ARF by instalments

DENTAL care professionals (DCPs) have until midnight 31 May 2021 to sign up to pay their Annual Retention Fee (ARF) by instalments.

The General Dental Council announced the introduction of the new ARF payment option earlier this year. The scheme aims to support dental professionals who pay their own fee by enabling them to spread the cost over the year with quarterly Direct Debits. For DCPs this works out as four payments of £28.50.

Dentists who wish to pay their ARF by instalments will be able to select this option later in the year. Further information about the pay by instalments option is available via the GDC’s website.
