Hong Kong Membership Fees
Concessionary rates are available for eligible members.
Payment Options - Hong Kong
We make paying your membership fees easy by giving you the option to pay online, by direct debit (for UK bank account holders only), over the telephone, or by sending us a cheque. Payment receipts are issued automatically via email - please allow up to 48 hours for delivery. See below to find out more about these payment options.
Our subscription year runs from 1 January to 31 December. Members joining from the 1 February each year will be eligible for a pro-rata subscription.
Pro-rata subscriptions are calculated on a monthly basis across the year based on the full-year subscription.
Thinking of retiring in 2023?
We offer a reduced rate for Associate, Incorporated and Chartered members who have retired. For more information about concessionary rates login to our members portal (top right) and click on 'membership'. Please note you can only apply for this once you are retired.
When you move grades (for example, on achieving MCIOB), you will be required to pay the difference between membership subscription fees; this is called a "subscription adjustment".
