Visit: Paying the Annual Fee Electronically
- The annual fees for 2023 must be received by the SANC on or before 31 December 2022.
- The amounts in the tables above all include 15% VAT.
2.RESTORATION FEES FOR 2023
The restoration fees for different categories applicable from 1 January 2023 are shown in the following table.
|Registered Nurses and Midwives||R2 200.00||R150.00|
|Enrolled Nurses and Midwives||R1 320.00||R150.00|
|Enrolled Nursing Auxiliaries||R920.00||R150.00|
The reduced restoration fee only applies to a practitioner:
- Who must have been removed from the register at his/her own request; or
- Who must be 60 years of age or older on 1 January 2023. However, this must be confirmed with the Council before paying the reduced amount.
A Nurse Practitioner who no longer wishes to practise in South Africa or who is unemployed, may request, in writing, for a voluntary removal of his/her name from the register, by completing the form available from the SANC. If a voluntary removal is granted by the SANC, the nurse practitioner’s name will be removed accordingly on the 31st of December of the year in which the application is received. Once removed, the nurse practitioner will no longer be required to pay annual fees while he/she is removed from the register.
If the nurse practitioner requires reinstatement onto the register, he/she will, in addition to paying the reduced restoration fee, be required to complete a Restoration Form which can be accessed from the SANC website, www.sanc.co.za. It must be noted that practising while not being registered is illegal.
4.CLOSING DATE FOR PAYMENT OF ANNUAL FEES
Please note that for the calendar year 2023, the closing date for the payment of annual fees is 31 December 2022. Payments must reach the SANC bank account on or before the closing date. You are, therefore, urged not to leave payment for the last minute to avoid problems associated with making payments at year end.
Remember: Bank transfers from non-FNB banks may take up to 3 working days and you are therefore advised to pay well in advance to meet the 31 December 2022 deadline.
Please note that other fees and fees payable by institutions will be applicable with effect from 01 January 2023.
The signing of Resolution 3 of 2019 in September 2019 by the National Department of Health together with major trade unions in Public Health and Social Development Sectoral Bargaining Council (PHSDSBC), brought into effect the implementation of PERSAL deductions from the 2020 APC season for all employees falling under the scope of the PHSDSBC.
As a result of this agreement, affected Nurse Practitioners are urged not to pay the annual fees on their own as the employers are required to pay on their behalf in terms of Resolution 3 of 2019.
The SANC has made an eRegister facility available on the SANC website which can be utilised by employers to verify the registration status of all Nurse Practitioners in their employment. Employers are urged to utilise this facility in the absence of a physical Annual Practising Certificate (APC).

8.COMMUNITY SERVICE PRACTITIONERS
Community Service Practitioners are not eligible to be issued with an APC, and therefore, should NOT pay annual fees. They MUST pay a conversion fee on completion of their Community Service in order to be registered as Nurse Practitioners using the REGFPRA registration fee code instead of ANLFEES (e.g. 12345678REGFPRA).
Paying the Annual Fee Electronically
You are welcome to pay by Internet/telephone banking, etc. Be warned that payment must be received in the Council bank account before or on the due date and Council will NOT consider any relaxation of this requirement. In this regard, please take note of the rules of your banking institution regarding the effective date on which payment will be made to the beneficiary (SA Nursing Council). (You have agreed to these rules in your undertaking with your banking institution.)
- Use the Council banking details shown below.
- You must ensure that the Council can positively identify who the payment is from. Make sure that the details that will be printed in the Council’s bank statement contain your 8-digit Council reference number followed immediately by the annual fees payment type code “ANLFEES“. Check that this information is correct! It is not necessary to add any other information such as “Ref.”, “SANC”, etc. – this sometimes hides the important information because some of the banks cut off information that is too long. Companies are warned that their banking systems often only print the company name (by default) in Council’s bank statement and Council received no other information to identify the nurse for whom the payment is made. The following example is given to show the format required. You should substitute your own details where necessary. Example:
- Allow 4 weeks for your annual receipt and licence to practise to reach you by post.
- Council staff cannot help you with queries regarding your bank’s electronic systems – please refer your queries to your bank. (Standard Bank Internet banking clients – please see the notes in the following section).

|Bank Name:||First National Bank|

Can I be sure that Council will allocate my electronic payment correctly?
Council processes all payments into the No. 2 Account electronically and has already processed well over 1,94 million payment in this way. Statistics show that the system allocates payments automatically to the correct person 99,5% of the time. The remaining 0,5% have to be allocated manually. Follow the above instructions carefully and help us make it 100% !!! (Statistics as at 2014-07-31.)
