How to pay your fees

The methods by which you or your employer can pay your annual membership fees and other subscriptions, including card payments and AliPay. Find out details of how to make online payments, bank transfers, direct debits and telephone transactions.

Online payments

The easiest and quickest way to pay your membership and subscription fees is online at icaew.com/pay. You will need to be logged into icaew.com to pay this way and will need your membership number. You can find this on your membership renewal notice.

Once you have confirmed your membership details are up to date and confirmed if you are applying for a reduced rate, you can then select a payment method. The online options include:

  • AliPay

    This payment option is only available for members located in China.

    Visit icaew.com/pay and select "pay by AliPay" from payment options.

  • Bank transfer

    You can pay direct to ICAEW’s bank account by using electronic transfer. All fees must be paid in sterling. 

    Please be aware that you will be liable for any bank charges incurred for the transaction. 

    You must ensure that your record number/membership number is transmitted with your payment.

Direct Debit

You can sign up to a Direct Debit by completing an online form by visiting icaew.com/pay. Please ensure you are logged in to enable this function to work.

Alternatively, you can download a PDF version of the form and email the completed document to fin@icaew.com.

Once your Direct Debit information has been submitted and actioned, you will receive an email or letter of confirmation.

If you already have a Direct Debit set up and need to make a change to your subscription, please do so before 1 December.

Paying over the phone

You can pay by phone via our secure automated 24-hour payment line on +44(0) 1908 248 250.

We accept telephone payments from all major debit and credit cards, with the exception of American Express.

How your employer can pay

If there is an agreement in place that your organisation pays your membership fees we will contact them directly to request payment.

If you are unsure if there is already an agreement in place, you should check this with your employer or visit icaew.com/pay.

If there is no agreement set up, your employer can complete a bank transfer. Please ensure they reference your membership number and name clearly. 

Alternatively, you can make the payment yourself and claim it back from your employer.

Should you require a proforma invoice for your subscription fees prior to making payment, please contact us with your request.

Please be aware that proforma invoices are available from 1 November, ahead of the coming subscription renewal year.

Please note: You are responsible for renewing your membership by the due date and not your employer.
