How you can pay

cheque CDI Logo plain Moneycash

There are a number of ways you can pay your membership subscription

1. Direct Debit

Keep your membership up to date by Direct Debit and never miss a renewal. Each membership rate has its own mandate form to complete, so please ensure that the  mandate you choose correlates with your membership type:

Please note that these mandate forms are for new member applications only and not for renewals. A renewal mandate form is available through the renewal letter which will automatically be sent with your renewal invoice.

Direct Debits will appear on your account as GoCardless, our Direct Debit platform. When payment plans are first set up or changed you will receive a notification for each one. 

If you receive an email stating that your subscription has finished this relates to your DD payment for that year and not your membership with the CDI.

Paying by instalments

We are able to offer a choice of 2 direct debit instalment plans.

3 instalments of £38 (this will increase your membership fee to £114)

10-month instalments of £12 on the 1st of the month (this will increase your membership fee to £120)

An instalment plan can be requested by emailing Lyn Burgess at

Professional Register

We are able to offer the above plan 3 month plan with your £25 Professional register fee included in your 1st instalment. ( total membership fee £139.)

12-month instalments of £12 on the 1st of the month includes your £25 rofessional register fee.  (total membership fee £144.)

Please note that you must have a CDI member to be eligible to go on to the Register. Paying the Register fee alone does not entitle you to CDI Membership. If you are a Registered Professional, this is already included in the initial price.
