Subscription Fees 2018

The General Treasurer informed Council in December 2017, that subscriptions would increase from April 2018 by 15 pence per month for full-time members and by 8 pence per month for part-time, temporary, job-share or supply contracts and retired members.

The reduced annual subscription for 2018 for full-time members will be £171.30 and £85.65 for part-time, temporary, job-share, supply and retired members, if their fees are paid by annual direct debit or cheque by 31 January 2018. This saving is clearly of advantage to members and is only available to those who pay before the end of January.

The rates for 2018 are as follows:

Full-time members
£171.30 if paid annually by 31 January 2018, or £186.75 if paid afterwards;
£15.45 per month January to March, £15.60 per month from April 2018, when paid by monthly direct debit.

Retired, part-time, job-share, temporary or supply members:
£85.65 if paid annually by 31 January 2018, or £93.37 if paid afterwards;
£7.72 per month January to March and then £7.80 per month from April, when paid by monthly direct debit.

We should like to remind you that your SSTA subscriptions are a tax allowable expense. Two-thirds of the annual subscription payable to the Association is allowable for income tax relief.

There are specialist firms that can assist you in doing this and at the same time, check if you have been missing out on any other tax allowances or been given the wrong tax code by HMRC meaning you are owed a tax refund.
