Make a payment to MHRA

How to make a payment to MHRA by credit or debit card or a bank transfer.


Once your application has been validated you will receive an invoice to allow you to make payment for the outstanding amount.

All invoices must be settled upon receipt of invoice. Penalty fees may 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 any unpaid amounts, as a debt due to the Crown.

Please ensure you quote relevant invoice and customer number when making payment.
