Encouraging Further Use of Online Services 

From 01 January 2015, the Department introduced a flat rate fee for those cattle keepers who intend to use the application form for births along with cards for movements (i.e. the postal service). This is priced dependent upon herd size: 

Herd Size*

Annual Fee



>50 and <149




*as recorded on BITS. 

If you are an ADS claimant then the flat rate fees will be collected from your ADS payment; any others will be invoiced.
