Subscriptions for membership of the DSA in New Zealand are minimal during the period the company is establishing itself but once full membership is granted and as the company grows within the market, the amount due in fees will increase perportionately with the ability to pay.

Thus the larger members of the DSA contribute significantly more to the DSA than the small companies but we still give equal rights to those small companies are our way of encouraging both growth and new entrants to the Direct Selling market to be a member and adhere to our Code of Practice. There are different rates for each membership category and these are set out in the fee scale shown below:

GST and non New Zealand domiciled members:
While normally services provided to non resident business are Zero rated for GST purposes the DSA considers that GST for subscriptions is considered payment for a service that is being rendered within New Zealand as it relates to the business activity operated within New Zealand by that business. Therefore the DSA must charge GST for all subscriptions regardless of domicile to comply with New Zealand GST law.

Any charges made for consultation or advice by the DSA (should these be required) for non New Zealand domiciled businesses would however be considered as service being provided outside of the country and therefore subject to the zero rating accordingly.
