Pay your annual fee

Find out about the different ways you can pay your annual fee: direct debit, online, credit transfer, instalments.

You must pay your annual fees by the due date shown on your invoice.

The due date is 30 days from the date of your invoice.

You can pay by any of the methods shown here, but we prefer you to pay by direct debit to minimise costs.

If you don’t pay on time, we will charge you an extra £250 plus interest at 5% above the Bank of England’s base rate for the period of time between the due date and the date we receive payment.

Direct debit

Fill in the direct debit form and send it to the address on the form.

Make sure that:

  • your FCA firm reference number is correct
  • your account number has 8 digits
  • your sort code has 6 digits
  • your bank account accepts direct debits
  • you include your telephone number

Once a direct debit is set up, we will collect the full amount in one payment either on the due date or shortly after.

Online invoicing

If you've registered for online invoicing you can make payments online using one of these cards:

  • credit
  • debit
  • Maestro
  • American Express

If you are not registered for online invoicing, email [email protected] for a unique validation code which you will need to user the service.

Instalments

We do not provide for payment by instalments, but if you wish to pay this way there are a number of instalment finance providers available online. You can either search for one or speak to your trade association, if applicable, who may be able to help you.

If you don’t pay on time, we will charge you an extra £250 plus interest at 5% above the Bank of England’s base rate for the period of time between the due date and the date we receive payment. 

Credit transfer (eg BACS, CHAPS, faster payments)

When you make a payment, reference it with the 'account number' as shown on your invoice (which is your firm reference number).
