HMRC Guidance
Approved professional organisations and learned societies
Updated 29 June 2017

You can reclaim tax you pay on fees or subscriptions to some approved professional organisations - but only if you must have membership to do your job or it’s helpful for your work.
You can’t claim tax back on fees or subscriptions you’ve paid to professional organisations not approved by HM Revenue and Customs, or for:
- life membership subscriptions
- fees or subscriptions you haven’t paid for yourself, eg your employer has paid for them

How to claim
The way you claim tax relief on expenses depends on the amount you’re claiming for.
Claims up to £2,500
You should make your claim:
- using a Self Assessment tax return if you already fill one in
online or by printing and posting form P87 if you don’t already fill in a tax return
by phone if you’ve had a successful claim in a previous year and your expenses are less than £1,000 (or £2,500 for professional fees and subscriptions

Please access the HMRC website for appropriate forms and information re any potential tax relief claim   https://www.gov.uk/tax-relief-for-employees/overview
