Fee returns are due to the Diocese monthly or quarterly if the amount due is below £375 per quarter. Form A is optional for record keeping per service, Forms B (detailed return) and C (summary return) should be sent to the Finance Department together with payment. If there are no fees due for a quarter, please send a Form C nil return.

Please send returns for the previous financial year by 31 January to enable these to be included in the year end accounts and next year’s share allocation calculations. The report below summarises fee returns received to date.
