Secretaries' Calendar

 

Here is a helpful calendar for secretaries.

January - Maintenance of Title Fee

The fee payable to the Kennel Club for continued registration/affiliation.

A reminder to societies is published in the October and January editions of the Kennel Club Journal. Fees must be paid by 31 January by cheque unless the society has a direct debit arrangement. Secretaries should confirm with the society's bank before January that the arrangement is in place. In the event of any change to the society's account details, the direct debit should be re-confirmed. Societies with branches must pay their branch fees at the same time.

Breed Councils do not pay Maintenance of Title fee.

July - Annual Returns

Information required to confirm the society is operating in accordance with Kennel Club Regulations.
Reminders are published in the January and July editions of the Kennel Club Journal.
The following must be submitted by 31 July.
