Subscription rates

Subscription rates are now frozen until 2022

Recognising the financial pressures facing members due to the continued policy of civil service pay restraint, the FDA has taken the bold and confident action of freezing subscription rates. A motion committing to a five-year freeze was passed with overwhelming support at the 2017 Annual Delegate Conference.

If your salary changes for whatever reason at other times during the year, the FDA should be notified in writing as soon as is possible, so that your subscription payment can be adjusted accordingly.

For Band FS members - Fast Streamers - the first six months of membership are free. Only after the initial six months is the first subscription collected. 

For members in HMRC - the Association of Revenue and Customs (ARC) - membership subscriptions are 25p more than the FDA subscriptions. This represents a monthly payment of 25p to the ARC political fund, but ARC members may opt out of this if they wish.
