You have two payment options:

Cash-flow friendly Monthly Membership @ £9.95 a month.
Once you enter your details, we’ll take care of the monthly payment.  You can cancel your Membership anytime you like, and you won’t be charged a penny.

OR: Sort-it-in-advance Annual Membership @ £135, payable annually.
This is not automatically renewed, so you will be asked to submit payment info every 12 months to keep your subscription active. The BSAA Team will always endeavour to give you plenty of notice prior to your Membership expiring. You will not be charged if you decide to not renew for the next year.

"Why is it cheaper to pay monthly?" 
The annual subscription is more of a corporate subscription. As we support solopreneurs, we're keen to incentivise people to go for the cash flow friendly option! 

Use our easy online form to signup.

Prefer to pay by bank transfer or check? Email a request to and we will manually process your Membership.

See you online soon!
