You must pay your annual membership fee online with  GoCardless
GoCardless is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority as an Authorised Payment Institution.

ASHS operate a system that aligns all membership subscriptions to the 4th April regardless of when they join.
This system makes it easier for the ASHS team to follow up members who haven't paid at the designated time and quickly check if there is a problem and try to resolve it.
It also simplifies the finances as all subscriptions come into the bank at the same time.

How It Works.
If you join between 1st April and 31st December, you will be charged through Go Cardless for the full fee relevant to your membership status.
Your 2nd annual subscription will be taken on the 4th April and every year thereafter at the same time.
If you join from the 1st January to the 31st March, you will be charged the full fee at the time you join and again on the 4th April. You will however have the second payment refunded.
This in essence means that you will receive 3 months free membership if you join within this period.
