SACAP Registration fees and other annual fees
Share |

Council may determine the registration and annual fees payable by registered persons in accordance with Section 12 of the Architectural Profession Act, 2000 (Act No. 44 of 2000) (the Act).

SACAP charges a once-off non-refundable administration fee for a first time application. The Act also makes provision for administrative fees for all other services that SACAP renders. Thereafter, an annual fee for both candidates and professionals is due on 01 April and becomes payable within a 60 day period.   The annual fee is charged as a pro-rata fee from the date of registration to the end of the SACAP financial year, which is 01 April - 31 March annually.

In terms of Section 20 (1) (a) (iii) of the Act, Council is mandated to cancel any person's registration who has failed to pay the fees by the due date. Registered Persons whose registration has been cancelled must pay all outstanding arrears plus a re-registration fee before they can be re-registered in order to practice legally.
