Business Plan (Master’s Priorities) and Practising Certificate Fee 2022/23 Consultation

The Faculty Office is seeking views on its Business Plan (otherwise termed the Master’s Priorities) for the next three years.   The Business Plan can only be met if the Faculty Office retains its funding which, for the regulatory side of the organisation, is largely met by the annual practising certificate fee.  We are therefore combining a consultation on the Priorities set out in the Business Plan with a consultation on the level of the Practising Certificate Fee payable by Notaries for the practising certificate year 1st November 2022 to 31st October 2023.

The Consultation will close at 5pm on Friday 12th August 2022. Responses in writing by email to or by post to The Faculty Office, 1 The Sanctuary, Westminster, SW1P 3JT.

The Registrar and Chief Clerk will also be available to discuss the matters set out in the Consultation and to answer any questions at a virtual drop-in meeting via Zoom between 2pm and 4pm on Monday 25th July and joining instructions are set out at the end of the consultation document for anyone who would like to join us.
