Subscription Fees 2024

The General Treasurer informed December 2023 Council that the Finance and General Purpose Committee had agreed to recommend to Council an increase of £1.25 to the full-time rate of subscription.  That would mean that the subscription rate would increase to £198.00 (£184.25 last year) for annual payers.  For those who chose to pay monthly, this would mean payments increasing to £18.00 per month (£16.75 last year).  This was approved by Council.

The reduced annual subscription for 2024 for full-time members will be £198.00 and £99.00 for part-time, temporary, job-share, supply and retired members, if their fees are paid by annual direct debit or cheque by 31 January 2024.  This saving is clearly of advantage to members and is only available to those who pay before the end of January.

The rates for 2024 are as follows:

Full-time members

£198.00 if paid annually by 31 January 2024, or £216.00 if paid afterwards;

£18.00 per month from January 2024 when paid by monthly direct debit.

Retired, part-time, job-share, temporary or supply members:

£99.00 if paid annually by 31 January 2024, or £108.00 if paid afterwards;

£9.00 per month from January 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.
