Professional fees and subscriptions
You can claim tax relief on:
- professional membership fees, if you must pay the fees to be able to do your job
- annual subscriptions you pay to approved professional bodies or learned societies if being a member of that body or society is relevant to your job
You cannot claim tax relief on life membership subscriptions, or for professional membership fees or annual subscriptions you:
- have not paid yourself (for example if your employer has paid for them)
- have paid to professional organisations that are not approved by HMRC
Your organisation can tell you how much tax you’re allowed to claim back.
