We have two levels of individual membership: Member and Fellow.

Individual Membership lasts 12 months on an annual subscription basis, and you will be reminded via email as your renewal date approaches.

The ICRS is included on HMRC’s approved list of professional bodies and learned societies. This means that individual members can claim tax relief on their annual fees.
