Frequently Asked Questions

The Guide and the FAQs are intended to help with information about parochial fees. 

The 'definitions' section (in both the Guide and the FAQs) is intended to explain the meaning of the special terms used  with regard to parochial fees, including those defined in legislation. Parochial fees are regulated by Ecclesiastical law and the Guide is amended when new legislation is passed. 

The FAQs (which are updated from time to time) gives answers to the more commonly asked questions.The FAQs were last updated in December 2014.

Range of possible fees for 2016

Fees from 2015 will be set according to a formula based on the year on year increase in the RPI in September of the year before the new rates of fee come into effect. So fees for 2016 will be set when the September 2015 RPI increase is known. This will be in the middle of October 2015. On the right  under Resources is a file giving estimates of 2016 fees based on possible increases in the RPI.
