You are able to remit your membership fees in one payment via a variety of methods:
You may join the Direct Debit scheme to pay your membership fees at any time. Event registration fees cannot be paid in this way.
To join the scheme, simply download the form, fill in both pages (and be sure to sign it), and return it to the Freepost address on the form.
The DD payment year runs from January to December of the membership year. For example, if you pay for your 2017 membership over the membership period, you will pay from January 2017 to December 2017. Memberships will be automatically renewed for the following if BIOS is not notified by 30th November. For example, if you do not wish to continue with your membership in 2018, you must notify BIOS via email no later than 30th November 2017 that you do not wish to continue, failure to do so may result in a cancellation fee.
When you join the scheme, we will contact you at least 10 working days before the first payment is taken, to tell you how much the first payment and subsequent payments will be. If you join the scheme late, the first payment may be larger to bring you up to date. Thereafter, we will contact you to advise you in advance of any change to the amount being taken (if at any time in future the subscription amount is adjusted, or if you change your membership level).
If you join the scheme late, the first payment may be larger, we will contact you to advise you of the amount that you need to pay to bring your account up to date. If you have any questions please do not hesitate contact the office on +44 (0) 203 853 9797 and we will happy to assist you.
If you are not currently a member of BIOS and plan to rejoin for next year, your membership will commence from 1st January, please do contact the office +44 (0) 203 853 9797 if you have any further questions.
