GST on membership fees

Fees for New Zealand members include GST. International members do not pay GST. 

Re-joining Fee

If your membership lapsed because you didn’t pay your Membership fee, you will need to pay a re-joining fee priced at 20% of your former membership category. We will invoice you for the re-joining fee which must be paid before your membership application is processed. 

How to Pay

  1. Log in to the Members Self Service Portal
  2. Click 'My Invoices'
  3. Tick the 'Pay Invoice' box next to the amount you wish to pay and then click the 'Pay Now' button
  4. Click 'Complete Payment' button
  5. The Payment Express page will appear. Select your payment method and complete the required details, then click 'Submit'
  6. Once your payment has been authorised, click 'Next'. This will return you to your Member Self Service Portal. Please remember to click 'Finish' in order for the payment to be fully accepted. 
  7. Your payment receipt will be automatically emailed to the email address listed on your account.     

Career Break Policy

If you take leave from work for at least 6 months, then you can apply for a reduction in your membership fees.

Your career break may be for parental leave, or you might be taking care of your own/a family member’s health. You may be unemployed, have gone back to studying full-time, doing voluntary work overseas, or be in other circumstances that we may consider.

While you're on a career break, you’ll receive all your usual membership benefits to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the profession, such as receiving newsletters, attending events at reduced member rates, using the Member Benefit App and login access to the website.

Read the NZIQS Career Break Policy for more information, and how to apply.
