Fee and Fine Payable to SANC
The fees and fines payable to South African Nursing Council are regulated by the Regulations regarding Fees and Fines payable to the South African Nursing Council published by Government Notice No. R.170 of 8 March 2013 (as amended).

The information below applies to all other payments to SANC, and specifically with making payments into SANC's bank account. SANC encourages all clients to make use of its reference deposit bank account for all payments as the most cost and time effective method of making such payments.
South African Nursing Council Reference Deposit Bank Account Details
South African Nursing Council prefers all payments to be made into its Reference Deposit Bank Account. This account has been specially set up so that the details of the payer and the purpose for which the payment is made can be captured by the bank - which will significantly speed up the time taken to process payments.
The SANC's Reference Deposit Bank Account details are as follows:
While payments into this account can be made in person at any branch of FNB (First National Bank), electronic means such as Internet banking, cell phone banking, and ATM payments can also be used. Some of these require that a payment beneficiary be set up on your bank/card account. Please consult your own bank if you need any assistance in setting up a beneficiary.
The special features of this reference deposit account is that it has the ability to capture the payers account number and a payment type code in the Reference details. This information is verified (for correct format) if paying at any FNB branch or when using FNB online banking. Standard Bank's system will insist on and only permit the account number to be captured. For all other methods of electronic payments, it is up to the person making the payment to ensure that the correct information is provided.
How to use the Reference Deposit Account to pay Fees or Fines owed to the South African Nursing Council
No matter what method of payment you choose, albeit at an FNB branch or some form of electronic banking, you must please ensure that the deposit reference is correctly filled in. The reference consists of two parts:
The following line is an example of what a correct reference will look like:
In this example, '12345678' is the account number and 'ANLFEES' is the payment type code. You will notice that the reference is always 15 characters long.
PLEASE NOTE that the above reference is only an example and you should not use the above details for making any payment (it will be rejected by the bank). You must use your own reference number as the account number and choose the appropriate payment type code from the list given below.
STEP 1: Check and write down your SANC account number. This is the same as your SANC reference number which is always 8 digits long and starts with a '1'.
STEP 2: Determine the appropriate payment type code from the list below and write it immediately after your SANC account number. Do NOT leave a space between your account number and the payment type code
This is your correct reference to be used for this payment. (Any future payments will use the same account number but the payment type code may change according to the purpose for which payment is being made.)
