Concessionary membership fees
We offer half rate concessionary fees for those who are in receipt of an income of less than £15,000 per year before tax, and local rates for pre professional members in Malaysia, Singapore and Nigeria. To request a concession for a particular subscription year, you will need to send us a formal declaration confirming that you meet the eligibility criteria before 1 January.
We also offer concessionary rates for those who are fully retired from energy. There is no need to reconfirm this every year - a one off declaration in the year you retire is sufficient.
If you would like to apply for a concession, please download and complete the application form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that concessionary rates cannot be applied retrospectively.
VAT and Tax
There is no VAT on individual membership fees. If you are a UK tax payer, your membership subscription is tax deductable if you pay for your membership yourself. You can include your membership subscription in your tax return - or write to your tax office with details of your subscription so that they can make any necessarily arrangements.
