Annual registration cycle

Registrations operate under an annual cycle with all registrations having a common expiry date of 22 January each year.

Annual registration cycle

Renewals of registrations must be submitted between 15 September and 5 December each year. Unless renewed they will expire on the following 22 January.

New registrations can be made at any time throughout the year and will expire on the common date of 22 January. This means that new registrations may be for more or less than a year, for example:

  • a registration made on 22 September will expire in 16 months (unless renewed)
  • a registration made on 22 June will expire in 7 months (unless renewed).
