*Services are available to all employees of named subsidiaries whose turnover is included in the Member Company’s annual turnover declaration. However, these subsidiaries do not qualify for voting.

Subscription Fees

Each Member Company pays an annual subscription, which is based on their declared UK rail turnover in the last financial year for which figures are available.  
 
Subscription arrangements are reviewed annually by RIA’s Finance Committee and Board. 
 
Subscriptions are invoiced to new members on commencement of membership and to existing members in the early part of the membership year. When a company joins after April, the subscription for the remainder of a financial year is charged proportionately.  

Different fees apply to bands of turnover: 

  • The basic rate is calculated at £810 per £1M of rail industry turnover up to £18.7M, subject to a minimum of £1,750.
  • Turnover between £18.7M and £49M is charged at the reduced rate of £795 per £1M. 
  • Turnover above £49m but below £215M is charged at a further reduced rate of £48 per £1M.  
  • Finally, turnover above £215M and up to £618M is charged at £8 per £1M. 
  • Beyond £618M there is no further charge.
