The Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England, are funded through a combination of registration fees charged to providers of regulated services and income from government. From 1 April 2013 there are some changes to the fees for providers but as before every registered provider will pay a single annual fee on the same date each year. The good news is that there is no increase for the majority of social care and support services including care homes and domiciliary care.
The CQC have a helpful fees calculator which should allow you to identify, for your setting, what fees are applicable. It can be found on the same webpage as the full details of the new scheme that is applicable from 1 April 2013.
