The Architects’ Registration Board confirmed at its Board meeting on 17 September 2015 that the 2016 annual retention fee would be held at £107.
Speaking after the Board meeting, Beatrice Fraenkel, ARB Chair, said:
‘We unanimously decided at our recent Board meeting to hold the annual retention fee for 2016 at £107. Whilst we have budgeted for an increase in running costs in 2016 as the Register continues to grow, additional income from new admissions will offset this rise.’
This decision was made in conjunction with our 2016 Business Plan, which includes a number of projects including a review of the routes available to join the Register alongside further investment in our online offering to meet the on-going demand for our services.
