As well as professional recognition and access to a number of events, membership of the BII brings many benefits including advice lines, discount on services and access to business tools via the BII website.  One of the most popular benefits is their preferential credit card processing rates via IPA which start at 1.056% – so you could potentially get your membership fee back in no time!


Associate Membership normally costs £155 (+ VAT) but as company members of the BII we have negotiated a special first year rate for new members of £99 (+ VAT), that’s over 30% discount!

Free membership!
