Here's how you can pay your RICS professional fee.

Renew online

To renew your professional fee instantly by credit/debit card, simply visit The online service allows you to pay 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Professionals based in certain countries outside of the UK only, fees can now be paid in full or in three monthly instalments (credit card only, subject to certain local restrictions).

If you are making a payment outside of the UK, please be aware that you might incur an international handling fee (charged by your provider).

Renew by direct debit

Professionals based within the UK with a UK bank account wishing to pay by Direct Debit for the first time, can do so by logging on to and complete an online Direct Debit mandate. We offer three alternative payment bases. You can renew by paying for the whole year in advance, in which case if you pay by direct debit your payment will be deducted on 1 January. You can also make payments monthly or quarterly by direct debit, but in that case your annual professional fee will be increased by 4% to cover our additional administrative costs

  • Annual direct debit: The total amount will be collected on or immediately after 1 January
  • Monthly/quarterly direct debit: If you choose to pay by monthly or quarterly direct debit instalments, you will incur a payment handling administrative fee of approximately 4% of the annual fee rate, to cover our additional administrative costs. Please bear this in mind when considering your payment options

Collections will be spread over the remaining 10-month period, with the full amount of any levies, administrative charges and/or LionHeart donation being taken on the first instalment date.

Collection dates:

  • Monthly – On or immediately after the first working day of each month from 1 January – 1 October
  • Quarterly – On or immediately after the first working day of January, April, June and September


Receipts are sent to professionals along with their RICS card for the year once the payment for their fees has been received and processed. Receipts are available for professionals to download online at should you wish to obtain a copy sooner.
