Membership fees

CIHT subscriptions run on an annual basis, January to December. We offer a pro rata rate in the first year of your membership, meaning you only pay from the month you join until the end of the calendar year, thereafter you pay the full year's fee in January.
We offer a range of payment options including credit/debit card and direct debit.

UK membership applies to residents in the UK on 1 January. International membership applies to residents outside the UK on 1 January. A reduced fee has been applied if you reside in a lower or middle income country (LMIC) as defined by the World Bank.

If you have any questions about joining CIHT or pro-rata fees, please ask our Membership Team at or complete the enquiry form

A concessionary rate is available for anyone who is not in paid employment, is working limited hours, or is experiencing a change in personal circumstances. For further information, contact or complete the enquiry form

Save money on your CIHT membership subscription 

CIHT is one of the HMRC approved professional bodies, therefore, if you are a UK tax payer and pay your own membership subscription fee, you may be entitled to claim tax back on your membership fee (between 20-40%). You will not be able to claim tax relief if you are a non-UK tax payer, if your membership fee is paid by someone else such as your employer or if you have a free-of-charge subscription. 

How to claim
To claim tax relief, you will need to send a receipt for your membership payment (a receipt will be automatically sent to your registered email on payment), which you can submit to the tax office with your tax return form. Please quote "CIHT". If you complete a self-assessment form you can note the fee paid on Form SA 102. If you do not complete a self-assessment form you can advise HMRC of your membership fees so they can adjust your tax code by completing and returning Form P87
