Kennel Club Members Agree Fee Changes for Show Licences

Kennel Club members agreed to the following changes to fees for show licences, at the recent Special General Meeting held in London.

The amendments reflect the introduction of limited rally competitions and streamline the regulations to encompass all shows and competitions. The changes ensure that further amendments will not be required should other licence types be introduced.

The amendments also introduce a sliding scale whereby the licence fee would increase with the number of licences applied for by authorised clubs or societies for agility, ie those organisations granted listed status. This is in response to an increasing number of these organisations running high numbers of open agility shows, some of them on a commercial basis; this change does not affect registered clubs and societies whose fees are not being increased.

The changes are as follows:

Regulation A(C)4.1

TO:

Shows and Trials

4.1 Show Licences etc.

(g) Open Breed Shows, Open Obedience Shows, Open Agility, Open Heelwork to Music Shows, Open Rally Competitions and Open Flyball Competitions (each) organised by Registered Clubs or Societies……………£35.00

(h) Open Breed Shows, Open Obedience Shows, Open Agility, Open Heelwork to Music Shows, Open Rally Competitions and Open Flyball Competitions organised by Authorised Clubs or Societies……………………£60.00

(i) Limited Shows and Competitions organised by Registered Clubs or Societies……………………………………………………………£10.00

(j) Limited Agility or Obedience Shows and Competitions organised by Authorised Clubs or Societies..................................................£25.00

(Insertions underlined. Deletions struck through.)

In addition, the following new rules were agreed at the meeting:

A(C)4.1(p) & A(C)4.1(q)

(p) For Licences issued to Authorised Clubs or Societies for Open Agility Shows there would be no change to fees for up to and including the first 10 licences per year, thereafter from 11-15 licences the fee would be £150 per day and for 16 or more licences a year it would be £250 per day.

(q) For Licences issued to Authorised Clubs or Societies for Limited Agility Shows there would be no change to fees up to and including the first 10 licences per year, thereafter from 11-15 licences the fee would be £100 per day and for 16 or more licences a year it would be £150 per day.

These changes are effective for show licences on or after 1st January 2017 but do not apply to those licences which have already been issued.
