• Submit your passenger numbers

    Licence holders should report their monthly, quarterly and annual passenger numbers online via the ATOL Portal. This means you will no longer be able to log in directly to the existing APC web page.

    To submit your APC return please log in to the ATOL Portal, select ‘Manage existing ATOL’ and navigate to the relevant administration page of the required ATOL and select APC Return. A quick reference guide on how to submit your APC return can be found below.

    How to submit your APC return via the ATOL Portal

    APC Payment

    Every licence holder has a statutory duty to pay the APC within six weeks of the end of each reporting period.

    Direct debit payment

    The CAA’s preferred method for collection of your APC will be by Direct Debit, where your payments will be collected automatically upon submission of your returns.

    Please complete the Direct Debit mandate and send it to the address provided.

    Licence Holders up to £5 million licensable turnover

    Quarterly reporting

    Licence holders and licence holder groups within an authorised licensable turnover of less than £5 million are required to submit quarterly reports detailing the passenger numbers and revenue based on departure date.
