With the cost of professional membership fees rising each year its worth knowing that you can claim back the tax.

Prof feesThis applies:

  • If you need to be a member of a professional body – or sometimes several – in order to do your job, or if it’s helpful for your work. In this case you can legitimately reclaim tax on fees or subscriptions.
  • If you paid the fees or subscription yourself (rather than your company paying)
  • If your membership is not a life membership subscription.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) operate a list of approved professional organisations.
Check whether your professional body, association or institute is amongst them.
