Annual Partnership Fee

Fees are given below in UK Pound Sterling.

Individual Partner fees are fixed. Partnership fees for Non-Profit Organisations and Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour Operators are based on ability to pay. This is assessed with a tiered payment scheme depending on an organisation’s annual income (turnover) for the previous accounting year.
