Registration and subscription fees
In your first year you’ll have to pay for your initial registration fee and your subscription fee if you become a student before 8 May. This is because you’re eligible to sit at more than one exam session in a calendar year.
After that your annual subscription fee is due and payable on or before 1 January each year if you wish to remain an active student. We send you an invoice every November – and you have three months to pay it. You need to pay this even if you don't plan to take any exams that year.
And if you forget to pay, you may be removed from the register of students and have to pay a re-registration fee, as well as any outstanding fees, to enable you to continue with your studies. Remember, you have to pay this whether or not you’re planning to take exams that year.
You can pay your fees online at myACCA. The payment enables ACCA to provide you with relevant resources and support to help you gain membership.
Joint Examination Scheme
Additional fees may apply to register with the relevant Joint Examination Scheme partner, details of which can be found in the Related Documents section below.
For information on exam fees please visit the Enter An Exam section of the site, which can be found in related links.
Affiliate subscription fee
Your first annual affiliate or member payment needs to be made by 1 January following the date on which you received your final exam results. This is payable for up to three years or until you become a member. After three years you will pay the full member fee, even if you are still an affiliate.
Admission to membership
Affiliates are required to pay an administration fee for admission to membership, once they become a member, which is totally separate from the affiliate subscription fee.
How to pay
The simplest and quickest way of making a payment is online via myACCA.
