BDAV membership fees are payable in advance by the 30th June each year. A Tax Invoice is issued to each Member prior to the renewal date to facilitate payment. A 20% Late Payment Penalty applies to annual membership fees that are not paid by the due renewal date.

Applicants for membership must pre-pay their first year's membership fee plus joining fee (where applicable) with their application for membership. A Tax Invoice is issued for GST purposes, following receipt of payment.

Applicants for membership who are wishing to join the BDAV during the course of a financial year may be eligible to pay a pro-rata first year's membership fee to bring their subscription fee in line with the BDAV's renewal period. Such applicants should contact the BDAV for details. Note the Joining Fee is not pro-rated.

Members who resign from membership are not eligible for a refund of fees paid for the current financial year. Cases of extreme hardship may be considered for refund if resigning from membership; however, the member must return their membership certificate to the BDAV with the request for refund.

Loyalty Discount

In 2008, the BDAV's Committee of Management introduced a Loyalty Discount to recognise long-serving members. Members who have held 10-15 years' continuous membership of the BDAV receive a 10% discount off their annual membership fee. Members who have held 15 or more years of continuous membership of the BDAV receive a 15% discount off their annual membership fee. Such discount, which is reflected on the Member's subscription renewal invoice, is only valid if the member pays their subscription fee by the due date (30th June), otherwise the discount is automatically forfeited.
