New members (or lapsed members rejoining after 2 years) also need to pay a one-off, non-refundable admission fee of £55.

Tax relief on membership fees

Did you know if you pay for your own membership you can claim tax relief? This means you can take home more of your income and pay less tax. Let HMRC know what you have paid and they will deduct your membership fee from your taxable income. Find out more on the Gov.UK website.

financial assistance for existing members

Pay monthly
If your membership is due to renew, email our membership team (at least ten days before your renewal) to pay your annual fee by monthly direct debit. Membership will cost less than £18 per month.

Payment breaks
If you are a CIPR member in financial difficulty, ask us about a membership payment break. We can freeze your payments for three months or more depending on how long you have been a CIPR member.

Changes in circumstances
If you are an existing member who has reduced your working hours or retired, we may be able to help with a reduced membership fee depending on your circumstances.

Maternity package

CIPR members on maternity leave are eligible for up to 12 months' payment holiday from CIPR membership – to ease the financial burden of Statutory Maternity Pay, and up to 12 months discretionary CPD credits – to maintain levels of accreditation.
