2023 Membership Payments

2023 Membership Payments

Dear Member

Changes in the banking procedures within the Society have brought about the necessity to close the UK sterling Ulster Bank Current account. This account has been unused for the last few years, except for members paying their annual membership subscription into it, and due to the administration costs, the time has come to close this account.

Any member that currently pays their membership through a standing order to this account must change the standing order over to one of the other three methods listed below.

Another change is, the Society has opened a euro account in the Republic of Ireland…. this will be the main trading account held by the Society and all euro payments for membership, calf registrations and semen purchased should be paid to this account. This should be of great benefit to members paying in euros and should help reduce the number of cheques and postage costs.

All members currently paying by sterling through the UK Danske Bank should continue to do so at present until further notice.

There is also a payment option through the website, this is an easy-to-use payment method and convenient for members but has a fairly high processing cost per transaction for the Society to cover which is a little detrimental to Society’s funds.

All membership subscriptions are due on the 1st January each year, and are for the calendar year, and must be paid before the end of January or the cost which the Society has frozen for another year at €50/£40 will jump to €60/£50 for late payment.

Membership must be paid in full to be able to attend the AGM, register calves, exhibit cattle at shows and to avail of the various payments from schemes such as the ACRES (ROI) or the EFS (NI).
