Your BAPS Membership Fee:

You can pay for membership with a single annual payment, or a monthly Direct Debit – both options cost the same.

If you’re a new member paying by monthly Direct Debit, your welcome letter will include your payment details.

If you’re an existing member, you’ll find the payment information in your renewal letter.

Please note, junior membership can only be paid for with a single annual payment.


Refunds on membership fees:

By making an application for membership you are agreeing to take that membership for at least one year.  Once your membership application has been approved your membership subscription will run for a full calendar year from the date of approval.

For all payment methods we will write to you shortly before the end of your membership year and you will be given the opportunity at that point to tell us if you do not wish to renew your membership for the following year.

Failure to Pay Your Membership Fee:

If you fail to pay the membership subscription or any instalment due within seven days of the date set out in the payment schedule, we will write to you and give you the opportunity to either pay that instalment, or pay all instalments due for the remainder of your membership year, by alternative means.

If you then fail to pay the relevant amount due by the required date, we will write to you again to
ask you to pay all instalments due for the remainder of your membership year.

Unfortunately, if you then fail to pay this amount by the required date your BAPS membership
membership will immediately be closed.

Please note that these provisions will not apply if your failure to pay is due to bank or BAPS error.
