Membership fees vary depending on your class of membership.
Check with your employer – many employers pay their employees’ membership fees.
Membership fees are charged annually – at the rate applicable to the country in which you are resident for most of the year.
Registration fees for members registered with the Engineering Council will be collected by the Institution at the same time as RINA membership fees.
The easiest way to pay is by Direct Debit. Fees are due by 1 January each year.
“Nothing that floats is too small or too great to receive attention from the Institution.” – Sir William White

UK tax relief
Did you know, as a UK taxpayer, you have the opportunity to potentially reduce your membership fee through tax relief?
Tax relief is given at the members marginal rate and based on the full amount of the annual subscription paid.
Visit the HMRC website for up to date information, including details on allowable expenses, eligibility criteria, and the process for reclaiming taxes from previous years.
We’re committed to supporting your career whatever your circumstances. If you’re facing financial hardship or have a reduced income as a result of a temporary career break, (for example unemployment, parental leave, extended illness or a return to full time education) you may be eligible for a reduced membership rate.
