Annual Fees & Dues

We have had many queries regarding the basis of charging, arising from the Annual Returns of both United Grand and Provincial Grand Lodges. The basis is as detailed below.

Payment of Members’ Subscriptions to their Lodges

These become due, in advance, on the first day of the Lodge’s Financial Year, as laid down in the Lodge By-Laws.

Payment of Annual Dues to United Grand Lodge

These become due, in arrears, on the last day of the Lodge’s Financial Year, as laid down in the Lodge’s By-Laws. Payment should be received in the Provincial Office on or before the last day of the month following the end of the Lodge’s Financial Year.

Payment of Annual Dues to Provincial Grand Lodge

These become due, in arrears, on the last day of the month, prior to the month of Installation, and cover the period from the first day of the month of Installation of the previous year. Payment should be received in the Provincial Office on or before the last day of the month of Installation.

United Grand Lodge Initiation Fee

Payment must accompany Registration Form P; to be sent immediately after the ceremony of Initiation. Membership Fees for Initiated Brethren will be included in the Annual Return [see 2 above].

Provincial Grand Lodge Initiation Fees

These will be charged, in addition to Initiated Brethrens’ Membership Fees, and included on the next Provincial Annual Return.

Scope of Membership Dues

Fees must be paid for all Brethren who have been members of the Lodge at any time

 during the Financial Year, including those who have died, resigned, ceased, been excluded, or been made Honorary Members.
