What can I claim for?

Can I claim tax relief on professional fees?

If you need to sign up to a union or other professional body to do your job, then you could have a tax refund to claim for your expenses. In the taxman’s language, many of those professional subscriptions are “tax deductible”.

A professional fee tax rebate doesn’t mean getting your entire fee refunded, of course. What you’ll get back will be the tax portion of what you’ve paid. In most cases, that means 20% of it goes back in your pocket.

Which fees will make up my claim?

Which fees count for professional subscriptions tax relief?

Not every penny you spend on fees will necessary count as a professional subscription tax deduction. However, HMRC has a very long list of approved organisations, so if your subscription is either essential or very helpful to your work, there’s an excellent chance you can claim for it.

There are a couple of little wrinkles in the rules to watch out for, though. Most importantly, you really do have to be paying the fees yourself for them to count as professional subscriptions tax deductions. If your employer’s footing the bill for them, don’t expect the taxman to cough up any cash. Lifetime memberships won’t count toward your tax refund, either.

WorkCostsR4U always keeps up to date on which fees and subscriptions count for tax relief. With our help, you’ll never miss out on the money you’re owed.
