GET READY TO GOCARDLESS
Published: 19 October 18
We are introducing a new payment system for our Members. GoCardless is an online tool which makes it easy for regular customers to pay by Direct Debit and is a well-known and trusted payment method which is used globally.
Arranging a Direct Debit will enable you to pay for your Membership Subscriptions, Events, Tonnage Measurements, etc.
With GoCardless you are notified that a payment is coming out in advance, giving you the chance to raise any issues about the payment.
Paying through GoCardless gives you certainty. You’ll know exactly how much you’re paying and when it will come out, which can help with budgeting.
You will only need to set up payment once – complete an online form and, unlike with a bank transfer, cash, cheque or card payment, you won’t have to remember to pay next time. Unless you change bank accounts, you won’t have to worry about updating your payment details either.
With Direct Debit, your payments are protected. For example, in the UK, you are fully protected under the Direct Debit Guarantee, meaning you have the right to cancel and receive a full refund for any payment taken in error.
GoCardless is a leading Direct Debit provider, processing over £5 billion in payments annually for more than 30,000 organisations in the UK and Europe.

Shortly, we will be sending you an email to update our billing address records before inviting you to sign up. We hope that you will find this service useful especially for payment of your annual Membership Subscription.
