Membership of the BESA starts from as little as £800 per year (inc. VAT), dependent upon the size of the business and in-scope turnover.

Operating as a not-for-profit Association, our membership fees are used solely to ensure that the BESA can continue to carry out its mission, representing the best interests of members, allowing us to continue delivering and developing innovative products and services to meet the needs of our members.

Upon successful application, instantly access all member services, browse extensive BESA knowledge and attend industry events.

Many of the products and services available are free of charge to members including legal and employment support, helping check over contracts free of charge before signing the dotted line or providing an audit of HR procedures.

The combined value of the wide range of BESA products, services and knowledge available to members can deliver over and above the cost of membership.
