How to pay

  • By Direct Debit:

Please note the Society accepts payment by direct debit and members with a UK bank account may find this option a more convenient way to pay their subscription.  We regret we cannot collect direct debit payments from non-UK accounts.

If you have a UK bank account and would like to pay by direct debit, please set up a direct debit with the Society’s approved payment provider, GoCardless.  Please refer to the Guidance on How to Set Up a Direct Debit

·         Please note the form requests a UK billing address. If you live outside the UK, we advise that you enter the address of the bank/building society of your UK account from which the direct debit will be collected.

·         Once you have confirmed the set up of your direct debit, you will be directed to the LMS webpage for membership login and a message will appear to confirm the direct debit has been set up.

·         You will also receive a separate email direct from GoCardless to confirm the direct debit has been set up.

Members paying by direct debit will be contacted to confirm the date on which their accounts will be debited. The main annual direct debit collection is normally on, or just after, 1 November each year.  If you have any queries, please contact the Membership Department (email., tel. 020 7291 9973; 020 7927 0808).

  • By Credit Card:

Credit/Debit Card payments can now be made online via the Society’s approved payment provider: WorldPay.  Please note you will be re-directed to WorldPay to complete the payment.

At the end of the transaction, you will be directed back to your membership record.

If you have any queries, please contact the Membership Department (email., tel. 020 7291 9973; 020 7927 0808).
