Bank transfers: We do NOT recommend the use of bank transfers. A bank transfer handling charge of 40 UK Pounds will be added if you intend
to pay by bank transfer. You must request a pro-forma invoice first by completing the registration form and ticking
the box "invoice before payment". We will then send
you a pro-forma invoice with our bank details. Our bank details have changed from previous years.
Please note that a bank transfer must be made in full without
any deductions for bank charges (neither domestic nor foreign charges). Upon receipt of your transfer we will
send you a full invoice as confirmation of
your registration. We cannot issue full invoices before payment. Please note that bank transfers often
take a very long time. If you choose to
pay a particular fee level that is time-restricted (for example 245 pounds which is valid until 1 Dec) your bank transfer
must reach our accounts before this date. Should it reach our accounts after this date, we will request that you
pay the difference.
All amounts are in UK Pound Sterling. We cannot accept payments in any other currency.
