It is starting to look like Nominet have mislead with their statement that there will be FREE transfers for Self-Managed TAG holders, in their various consultations and meetings. It appears, in the small print it is only SOME of the transfers that will escape the £12 charge, for Self-managed TAG holders.. If you have a domain not in a connected name but within your 5%, you have to pay the £12 to transfer it into one of the 5 connected names! or if you take it from another TAG. So any in-coming domains to a self-managed portfolio will still carry a Nominet transfer cost equal to 4 years renewal. A way around it would be to find a fully accredited Nominet TAG holder who does a Free registrant change (no charge to Nominet to the TAG holder) and a Free TAG holder change. But what a lot of extra effort to save £12. Nominet seem to want to be more commercial whilst not looking after the needs of its members and the registrants. It may not effect many people but it is not right to carry on charging anyone the £12.
