All firms pay an annual fee based on firm size and whether or not an employee of the firm is a fellow member of the Society. Firms with no Society members pay an annual fee that is higher than the fee for a firm with a fellow member. In order to enroll, a firm pays an entry fee based on when their review is due, their firm size and whether or not an employee of the firm is a fellow member of the Society.

First time enrollees whose peer review is due in the current year will be billed the service and evaluation fee and current year's annual fee. Those whose reviews fall after the current year will be billed for the annual fee in the general bill, which typically takes place in December.

If the year your review is due is 2018, 2019 or 2020 and you join the program now, you will pay an entry fee according to the schedule below:
