SUMMARY OF ‘FINES’ AND QUARTERAGE OF THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF CHARTERED ARCHITECTS
Admission to the Company as a Freeman incurs a one off 'Fine’ which comprises of fees for the admission to the Company, and election to the Livery following the obtaining of the Freedom of the City of London. The amount depends upon age. Student members pay a single joining fine of £25 and are then exempt from Quarterage and Charitable Trust contributions.
Quarterage, that is the annual subscription, is normally paid monthly by Direct Debit with a bank or building society and is separate to the single one off 'Fine'. Please do not forget to tick the gift Aid box if appropriate.
