Make a payment to MHRA

How to make a payment to MHRA by credit or debit card or a bank transfer and manage your account on iRIS.

From 1 April 2017 the way you will pay for medicines licences, clinical trials and clinical investigations has changed.

Applicants will no longer have to attach proof of payment to applications, reducing the regulatory burden and making the end-to-end process simpler, easier and quicker.

You will receive an invoice to allow you to make payment for the correct amount once your application has been validated.

There have been no changes to our payment terms and invoices must be settled on receipt of invoice.

Penalty fees can be incurred for non-payment, details of the penalties are set out in the Fees Regulations.

Non-payment may also result in suspension of any licence or authorisation, followed by legal proceedings for unpaid amounts, as a debt due to the Crown.
