Subscription payments

If you are a new or renewing member who has not previously paid by direct debit you should arrange to pay your FCI subscription fee by clicking "Set up payment" below, which will take you through to a form to set up a direct debit. If you are a member who has previously paid by direct debit your subscription will be taken automatically and you need take no action unless you qualify for a reduced rate (see below), in which case please contact info@fci.org.uk in good time before the due date.

When completing the direct debit form, please ensure you complete the "Contact forename" and "Contact surname" on the direct debit form exactly as you are addressed on communications from the Faculty.

Your direct debit will be set up as an annual payment as the default. At your request we can set it up for monthly payments (although we charge an additional fee as a contribution to the extra processing costs). 

A reduced subscription can be claimed by those who at the beginning of the subscription year are: on an income of less than £50,000 per annum, on an income of less than £25,000 per annum, retired, on maternity/paternity leave, or on unpaid sabbatical leave. Retired members must earn less that £25k per annum to qualify.

Associates who are full-time students can join the Faculty for a fee of £10.

If you are eligible for a reduced subscription, or would like to request a monthly direct debit rather than annual, please email info@fci.org.uk as soon as you have completed the direct debit form.

Once you have completed the direct debit form, the Faculty will insert the appropriate payment details for you. You will then receive a confirmation from our direct debit provider London & Zurich setting out the details of the direct debit.

If you have any queries please email these to info@fci.org.uk.

      Claiming Tax Relief on Subscription Fees

      As the Faculty has Charitable Incorporated Organisation status, members are able to claim tax relief on membership fees. With income tax reclaimed, membership rates can be reduced by 40% or 20% depending on your tax bracket (please see table below)

      If you undertake self-assessment tax return then you can add your Faculty membership to the list of expenses you or your accountant can include in your self-assessment return.

      If you are on PAYE then it is possible to apply online (you will need a Government Gateway login).

      Alternatively, you can print and post form P87.
