5. How are FIPP membership fees determined?

Rates are determined on the annual revenue attributable to an organisation, in £ Sterling at the current rates of exchange. This includes revenue from all activities home and internationally, including subsidiary or joint venture companies (of the same mebership type) in which the FIPP member has 50 per cent or more ownership. Such subsidiaries or joint venture companies have automatic membership as part of the parent company membership.

Calculating your membership fees:

FIPP membership runs on an annual, rolling basis. To calculate your fees, please look at the options below, then (1) determine whether your organisation is a media owner, association or a service provider; and (2) which band your company falls into, based on your organisation’s annual turnover. Next to that band is the applicable annual fee.
