We appreciate this is a very difficult time for members and therefore the increase is significantly less than inflationary. We are also focusing our efforts on ways to increase members’ income, through royalty distribution, unpaid fee recovery, and negotiating uplifts in pay.

Annual subscription rates will now be as follows:

  • Standard membership – £239 (with political levy £243.78)
  • Disabled musicians’ membership – £138.93 (with political levy £141.71)
  • Joint (EIS, NEU, RCO, UCU) – £119.50 (with political levy £121.89)
