Subscription renewals are circulated in February/March and are due by 1 April

  • Subscription bands are based on the recommended minima salary for your grade of membership. This structure allows accredited members (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) on lower incomes to apply for a reduced subscription rate and to ensure a fair subscription for those who earn less than the recommended minimum salary for their grade of membership please see below for Concessionary details.

  • If you are planning to upgrade your membership you will still need to renew your subscription at your current membership grade and then we will request the additional amount due once you have upgraded.

  • Student members can continue to pay the Student subscription category for up to one year after your graduation date.

  • If you have not received your renewal by the middle of March, please email subscriptions [at] or telephone 0118 966 2841.

Concessionary rates

Concessionary rates must be re-applied for each subscription year
If you are an accredited member (PCIfA, ACIfA and MCIfA) and your income is below the recommended minima salary for your grade of membership you can apply for a concessionary rate. For example, you may be an Associate (ACIfA) member of the Institute and expected to pay the ACIfA annual fee. But if you are employed in a post that has PCIfA-level responsibility and pay, you would then be able to apply for a reduction in your subscription fee to the rate paid by a PCIfA member. If you are earning less than the PCIfA recommended minimum salary then you can apply for a further reduction to the low income category or the unemployed or earning less than £10,000 category. If you work part-time, you would also be eligible for a concessionary rate if your income does not meet the relevant recommended scale.

Claiming tax back on fees

You can claim tax relief on your subscription if you are a UK tax payer as well.
