Terms and Conditions of Membership

I agree to the Terms and Conditions of RIN Membership as described in the Membership Types page of this website.


I wish to receive periodic e mails from the RIN updating me on forthcoming events and/or other news.

On clicking the "Submit Application" button below you will be given an opportunity to check the details you have entered and then will be redirected to the to a page where where you can either set up a Direct Debit Mandate or make a secure on line credit card payment for your first year subscriptions.

Please note that payments can be made through PAYPAL using your normal credit/debit card and that you do not need a personal PAYPAL account in order to pay online.

Fees Payable

Note: The subscription year runs from 1 July to 30 June. Applicants joining between 1 January and 30 June only pay 50% of the annual subscription. A full annual subscription will be due on 1 July.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid offers a simple way to increase the value of a gift of money from a UK taxpayer to a charity by allowing the charity to reclaim basic rate tax already paid on the donation by the donor from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). The Institute was granted permission by HMRC to participate in the Gift Aid Scheme for membership subscriptions a number of years ago. Click here for more details about the scheme and to check your eligibility for the scheme.

I want the Royal Institute of Navigation to treat all my subscriptions and donations I make from the date of this declaration, together with my subscription for the current year, until I notify you otherwise, as Gift Aid donations.

In ticking the above box I certify that:

  • I am a UK taxpayer and I pay an amount of UK income tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that the Royal Institute of Navigation reclaims on your donations in the tax year (currently 25p for each £1 you give).
  • I do not intend to claim my subscription as a deduction for tax purposes against my employment or business income.
  • My company or employer does not pay my subscription on my behalf.
  • If in the future my circumstances change and I no longer satisfy the above conditions then I will inform the RIN and cancel my Gift Aid Declaration.
