Join the fair trader scheme
To join the fair trader scheme, please complete the fair trader application form. We recommend reading the terms and conditions before you apply as businesses that don’t meet the terms and conditions may not be able to join.
Membership fees are based on the turnover of the business. A small, non VAT registered business is charged £129.17 + VAT (£155), and larger VAT registered businesses are charged at £206.67 + VAT (£248).
A non-refundable charge of £83.34 + VAT is charged when you apply and this amount will be deducted from your first year’s membership if you gain accreditation.
We make every effort to make sure members comply with the law, but we cannot guarantee that their work will never result in a complaint. Further information is available in the scheme's limitations or send your enquiry to the Fair Trader team.
