Applying for membership by exemption

You can submit your application online in just a few minutes. You'll need to provide photo ID and demonstrate that you have relevant work experience and/or relevant qualifications completed during the last five years by providing details of referees and/or uploading results certificates. You can do this during your online application or at a later date1. You may be asked to complete our Membership Entrance Paper (MEP), an online skills test, so that we can ensure you're offered the highest possible level of ICB membership.
 
Relevant qualifications are listed in our qualification conversion chart and you should view the Exemption Pathway to see if you can apply.
 
 
1If your application for membership by exemption is inactive for more than six months it will be closed and you will be required to pay the full application fee to reapply.

How long does the application take?

Applying for Membership by Exemption can take up to three months from the point your application is received. Please let us know if you are already running a business and need supervision under the Money Laundering Regulations during this time.

What does it cost?

The one-off membership by exemption application fee of £200 is halved for Accountex attendees using the voucher code ACTXMEM before 31 May 2019. Once exemptions are granted and you are offered membership, you will be asked to pay your first year's annual membership fee. If you are offering bookkeeping services to clients, whether as an incorporated entity or not, you will be required to hold an ICB Practice Licence which includes AML Supervision (annual fee of £150 plus one-off application fee of £50). Please let us know immediately if you are practising and we will send you the Practice Licence application form by email or post according to your preference.  

Fees & Subscriptions

Ongoing membership commitment

As an ICB member you are required to maintain and develop your expertise and professional skills as part of a commitment to continuing professional development (CPD). You can use the ICB online CPD logging tool to keep a record of your CPD activities each year.

You will also need to comply with the ICB Professional Conduct Regulations and hold an ICB Practice Licence if you are self-employed or running your own practice.

Offer terms and conditions

Half-price applications are only available to show attendees using the voucher codes listed above at checkout. There is no cash alternative. ICB provides no guarantee that you will be offered membership and reserves the right to refuse membership on any grounds.

If your application for membership by exemption is inactive for more than six months it will be closed and you will be required to pay the full application fee to reapply.
