Member firm and affiliate fees 2018/2019

There is no application fee to become an IFA member firm or an affiliate though you will need to meet the appropriate definition for each.

If you are accepted as a member firm you will need to pay the appropriate annual fee based on the number of BOOMs and offices your firm has. A BOOM is defined as a Beneficial Owner, Officer or Manager.
