How to pay for your membership

For members based in the UK and Republic of Ireland, Direct Debit is the easiest way to pay. We offer two options for paying by Direct Debit:

  • Annual Direct Debit: one lump sum payment due on or immediately after 1 June each year. If you’re setting up a Direct Debit arrangement after 1 June, you’ll be notified of the collection date.
  • Direct Debit by monthly instalments: this allows you to spread the cost of your subscription fee over a maximum of ten months. Each instalment will be collected on or immediately after the first of each month, beginning 1 June. If you’re setting up the Direct Debit arrangement after 1 June, you’ll be notified of the collection dates if they’re not in line with the standard schedule.
    If you do not currently pay your fees by direct debit, you will be able to set this up in a few simple steps by logging in to your MyRCR account.

If you are an existing direct debit payer and would like to change your direct debit details or frequency selected, please contact the Membership Operations Team on +44 (0)20 7406 5951 / 5903 or at [email protected].

Failed Direct Debit payments

Two unsuccessful collections in a membership period will result in the RCR not being able to offer direct debit as a payment method and you will be required to settle your remaining balance. Following this you will have the option of setting up a direct debit for the next membership year. The Treasurer will be notified of any member who reaches two unsuccessful payments.
