  • If you choose to pay by invoice please be aware that the deductions will begin from the next centralised stakes payment run on 15 June.
  • The invoice must be paid in full before 31 July for your licence to be renewed. You will not be able to nominate horses or be entered as a driver for race meetings in the 2023 season unless this invoice is fully paid.
