Membership fees are due by 1 July. As a member, we'll remind you closer to the time and update you with the information you need to renew your membership.

There are a number of ways you can pay your renewal fees, by direct debit offering annual or instalment options, or by credit or debit card. If you have already setup an annual direct debit, we’ll automatically collect fees on 1 July. If you’ve setup a direct debit to pay by instalment, we’ll update you with your payment schedule. If you’re based in the Eurozone, you can set up a Euro Direct Debit by completing the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) form and emailing it to us.

Simply select the latest invoice button, and then the alternative invoice button. Once you’ve completed the details, select generate invoice.
