The Inland Revenue has accepted that tax relief may be claimed on members subscriptions. Please see the draft letter below which should be adapted for your personal use which can then be printed off and either posted or faxed to the tax office.

Since 1994 you have been allowed a tax credit on 'Professional Subscriptions', your Federation dues are such a subscription and as such you should be claiming the allowance.

You should check you P60's and if they do not show an allowance for 'Professional Subscriptions' in any year since 1994.

With effect from the 26th June 2013 the subscription rates for new recruits at Year 1 and Year 2 will be decreased as follows:-
