Membership Payment

If you've already paid then thank you! If you haven't then use one of the options below (we prefer Direct Debits because our costs in terms of commission payments are lower, and it reduces the workload on the Membership Secretary in sending out reminders in future years).

  • ONLINE: by Direct Debit

    We use a third party, GoCardless to run our Direct Debit system. GoCardless is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2009, with registration number 597190. All payments are covered by the "Direct Debit Guarantee".

    Please click here to pay by Direct Debit. This will give permission for GoCardless, working on behalf of the BGA, to collect Direct Debits from your Bank Account. You will receive an email giving you 3 days warning that your subscription is about to be taken. If you bank with Natwest, HSBC, or Nationwide, your Bank Statement will only say “GoCardless Ltd” or “”. The reason for this is that these three banks choose to ignore the full references provided to them. Sorry. If you are with any other bank, your Bank statement will show the reference "GOCARDLESS.COM, ref: BRITISHGOASS-Q55GC".

    Please note that GoCardless will require you to provide a valid UK address.

    We will assume that you are paying the standard amount (currently £24/year) unless you tell us otherwise by emailing the Treasurer. Your subscription will continue to be renewed annually unless you inform us otherwise.

  • ONLINE: by PayPal or Debit/Credit Card
    Note: this will take you to a PayPal screen. If you do not have a PayPal account and want to pay by a Debit or Credit Card you need to click on the Check out as a Guest or Pay with a Debit or Credit Card link.

    • JOIN or RENEW
