NAS Membership Types and Fees

The National Association of Shopfitters offers four types of memberships. Companies operating in the shopfitting/fit-out industry join us as Full Members or New Enterprises, if they have been operating for less than two years. Associate Members provide the industry with auxiliary services and enjoy access to our full memberhsip base. The Approved Training Providers (ATP) offer wide array of courses relevant to the sector.

Full Members are shopfitting, fit-out or interior contractors. We are proud to have represented their collective voice for over 100 years.

Annual subscription starts from £950, at circa £79 per month (at 0% interest payments), depending on company turnover.

Associate Members are the sector’s supply chain – they provide products and services that are relevant to our Full Members and the NAS.

Annual subscription starts from £650, or circa £54 per month (at 0% interest payments), depending on company turnover.

New Enterprise Membership is for shopfitting, fit-out or interior contractors who have been trading for less than two years.

New Enterprises are accepted on the basis that they will pay only 50% of the equivalent Full Membership cost (based on company turnover), but will upgrade into a Full Member once they reach their two year anniversary.

Approved Training Providers are Associate Members that specialise in training, and provide preferential rates for our other Members. They are thoroughly assessed by our Training Manager to ensure they offer relevant, quality training before they are onboarded as a Member. 

Annual subscription starts from £650, or circa £54 per month (at 0% interest payments), depending on company turnover.
