Affiliation fees


Affiliation bands uses subscription income from full members to allocate each organisation into one of 11 bands. with each band charged an affiliation fee. We also have a separate band for certain commercial organisations and a zero fee band for Associations of Affiliated Clubs, and Forces Clubs etc. who are members of the relevant Umbrella Association.

The affiliation year was extended from 1st January 2022 to 1st April 2022 and 2022-2023 affiliation fees were frozen. Affiliations fees for 2023 have been increased at a below inflation rate of 4.7% on average.

The income from full members excludes income from membership categories such as youth/junior/cadet membership, overseas members, etc.

The RYA Affiliation subscription year runs from April to March. Invoices for affiliation fees are issued in March preceding the year to which they relate.
