How do I make the most of membership?

We work with all our member companies to help facilitate growth. However, success and return is always driven by a member’s level of engagement: the more you put in, the more you get out.

When does NEPIC membership period run from and to?

Membership runs from 1st January to 31st December.

Is membership individual or on a company basis?

How are membership fees calculated?

Our fees start from as little as £300 + VAT per annum and are based on a company’s number of UK employees. Companies joining before September 30th will pay a pro-rata fee for the proportion of the year remaining. Those joining from October 1st onwards will again be charged for the remainder of the year plus the following year’s membership.

Does membership renew automatically?

Yes. Membership is rolling and invoices for the following membership period are issued in December of each year.

What is NEPIC’s cancellation policy?

Membership of NEPIC is purchased on an annual basis or for the proportion of the year in which you joined. We certainly don’t want you to leave, however we appreciate that there are lots of reasons why this may be the case. Unfortunately, cancellation cannot be processed part way through a membership period and refunds cannot be issued. Cancellation must be received in writing and will become effective of December 31 of the year in question.
