DCLG Announce Lodgement Fee Increases
Elmhurst has been informed by DCLG that the fees for lodging to the Landmark registers are to be increased from 6th April 2013. Specifically this will affect the lodgement of Domestic and Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), Display Energy Certificates (DECs) and Air Conditioning Inspection Reports (ACIRs). The fee for domestic lodgements will rise to £1.67 and Non-Domestic lodgements will rise to £11.81.
Elmhurst would like to express our surprise and disappointment at this increase, we will be protesting this change with DCLG. Not only are the increases excessive, the notice period given is completely inadequate to allow companies to update processes, amend prices and apply these to ongoing work.
We are still awaiting confirmation from DFPNI as to whether this will affect Northern Ireland lodgements as well. As soon as there is further clarification we will post an update
