How do Groups handle fees for members who have joined before 1 April?

Scout Groups who welcome new members between 1 January and 31 March are requested to charge their local Group Fee only and notify families that the joining fee/backdated fee and State Membership Fee will be invoiced to them on 1 April.

Where new members have already paid their one-off joining fee and backdated State Membership Fee to their Scout Group, Groups are requested to refund the payment to parents.
