Fee deduction is a payment option available to Current Running Umpires who wish to have their membership fee deducted (taken out of) their match payments. Fees are deducted over a period of weeks once the season has commenced and will be visible on your weekly payslip. You must provide authority for the Association to do this by selecting the option on the application form.
