Annual Registration Fees Notices

Many thanks to those that have paid their annual registration fees in response to electronic invoicing. The electronic invoices were sent from REA Registrar “Roger Woods” using a Xero messaging address. Check your spam or junk folders or deleted items if you have not seen this message or did not recognise it as genuine.

If you did not receive an electronic invoice it is likely the e-mail we hold for you is out of date. Please let us know your current e-mail (or e-mails) particularly if these have changed in recent years. Our e-mail is

Posted registration fees notices were also sent to all unpaid REAs in mid May. Next year we hope to e-mail fees notices to more than we did this year so thanks to those who have advised a current e-mail.

Those for whom we only hold a postal address will continue to receive a hard-copy fees invoice in the letterbox.

Overdue fees notices will be e-mailed and posted to all unpaid REAs in July. The registration fee paid after 1 July is $95 or $155 for REAcap.

Otherwise fees payments are always welcome by cheque via post, over the counter at any BNZ or directly into our BNZ bank account 02-0585-0003513-00 (account name is Engineering Associates Registration Board). Please include your name and/or registration number as a reference on internet banking or branch payments.
