As we are aware that local businesses have faced many challenges following the pandemic, all fees are currently suspended.
Normally, a business wishing to join the Trader Register, will be charged a one off fee of £35 plus VAT, which is the fee to cover the cost of your application, including our time to obtain your references and make the necessary checks on your trading history.
When you have applied an officer will contact you to discuss how your application will be progressed. You will only be sent an invoice for the application fee once the officer has made contact with you to ensure that you do wish to progress your application.
Once accepted as a member, you will be asked to pay an Annual Fee of £86 plus VAT and will cover the period from 1st April to 31st March of the year charged. You will be sent an invoice requesting payment of the Annual Fee.
If you have any questions relating to these payments, please contact us via email: email@example.com
We can only accept requests for membership from traders who are based in St Helens. If you are based in another area, please contact your Local Authority to check if they run a similar scheme
