Guidelines for payment_2016

Fees must be paid in a manner which does not incur additional expense for the College. Any bank charges or currency conversion fees relating to payment of College fees must be met by those making the payments.

Payment details will be supplied to third parties who are invoiced by the College. College members, trainees, applicants and exam candidates have the option of ether paying by bank transfer or using the College’s on-line payment system. Details are provided in the EVDC DMS and TMS. Prospective trainees will be given access to the TMS when they notify the Secretary of their intention to apply for approval of a training programme. Payment details may also be obtained from the Secretary or Treasurer using the contact details available on the EVDC web site (www.evdc.info).

All automated payments must have an easily recognised payment reference so that they can be recognised and accounted for. The on-line payment system does this automatically for those paying for their own fees. Payments on behalf of others must be suitably annotated. Please ensure that payments in relation to invoices issued by the Treasurer quote the payment reference or invoice number indicated in the invoice. Payment references for other payments should be  in the form of a prefix indicating the category of payment (see below) followed by the surname and initials of the person or the company name that the payment relates to, e.g. O/Surname_I.
