Membership Fee Increase - 1st Dec 2017

Posted: Tuesday, 31st October 2017
   

The Scottish Artists Union is in a transitional period moving from little use of technology to making the most of technological advances to improve operations. We are grateful to the Scottish Trades Union Congress’ Union Modernisation Fund providing support for new resources to update operational systems which will free up time to spend on grassroots organising.

GoCardless is a UK Online Direct Debit provider, serving over 30,000 businesses.
This secure system of payment collection is covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee Scheme and links directly to our accounting system for transparent and efficient processing of membership fees.

 

How do I set up GoCardless to pay my union membership?

• You need to set up a direct debit to pay your membership subscription. 

• You will be sent an email inviting you to join GoCardless as the method of payment for your union membership.

• Follow the link in the email to confirm your membership details and enter your 6 digit Bank Sort Code and 8 digit Bank Account Number.

• Scottish Artist Union will not hold your bank account details.

• The payment will show as GoGardless on your bank statement.

• Monthly payments will be collected by Direct Debit on the 1st of every month.


• Annual payments will be collected by Direct Debit on the 1st day of the month after your expiry date.

• All payments are covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee Scheme.

• From 1st December 2017 until 31 March 2019, we are moving all members to a membership year of 1st April to 31st March dependent on your renewal date (see below).

• For some members paying annually, this will include a part year payment.

Paying Annually
