Renew 2023 Registration – Lodge 2022 Annual Return
Instructions for Veterinary Surgeons
You must complete the online process personally by no later than 30 December 2022. Completion of an annual return is a professional obligation under the Veterinary Practice Act 2003 and you should not delegate this task to another person. You must declare that you have personally completed the annual return prior to lodgement.
Please take care when answering all questions in the annual return. It is an offence under section 68 of the Veterinary Practice Act 2003 to provide information in an annual return that is false or misleading.
The 2023 annual practice fee for general registration has been fixed under the Veterinary Practice Act 2003 in the sum of $798. The fee must be paid by no later than 30 December 2022.
Please note that a late fee of $262 has been fixed under the Veterinary Practice Act 2003 to apply to all renewals of registration received after 30 December 2022. To avoid incurring the late renewal of registration fee, please renew your registration by completing the online process by no later than 30 December 2022.
If you do not wish to renew your registration for the 2023 calendar year, you must still lodge an annual return for the 2022 calendar year. Please do so by clicking ‘Lodge’ at the bottom of this screen. You will be prompted to answer questions relating to the 2022 calendar year. Please select the option ‘I do not wish to renew registration as a veterinary surgeon for the year ending 31 December 2023’.
