Registering your company as a skip operator costs £100. This is valid for a period of 12 months (1st April to 31 March).

If you submit an application after the 1st April you will be charged on a pro-rata basis. For example, if you registered in July then you would be charged £100.00/12 (months) x 9 (remaining months) = £75.

Will tacit consent apply?

Yes. This means you can act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us by the end of the target completion (28 days after submission of all relevant documentation).
