Annual renewals for 2020

Information about renewing your SQP status for 2020 was sent to all AMTRA SQPs on 10 October, by email or by post. Anyone wanting to continue to act as an AMTRA SQP after 31 December 2019 should have paid their annual renewal fee or had it paid by their employer by 30 November to avoid late fees. VMD will be notified of those for whom no payment had been made.

Individual SQPs can pay by logging in (with SQP number starting with Q as the user-id).

Employers can log in (using their employer user-id, usually the email address of our employer contact) to pay for their SQPs, or to remove SQPs who no longer work for them. Employer contacts who are also SQPs should log in with the email address if they want to handle company details, or their personal SQP number if they want to manage their personal details.

When paid by 30 November 2019 for the following year, the renewal fee is:

  • farm-animal SQPs (those with the letters R, G, K or L in their prefix): £48, or £46 including the £2 discount described below
  • all other SQPs (those with the letters, C, E, J or A in their prefix): £43, or £41 including the £2 discount described below

A discount of £2 per person is available to those paying by the due date either online on the AMTRA website (either as individuals or smaller businesses paying for multiple SQPs), or for larger businesses managing their SQPs’ renewals on their behalf in an agreed manner.

A late payment fee is charged on those renewing after 30 November 2019 but by 31 March 2020, making the total fee £58. After this, the reinstatement fee is payable.
