Claiming tax relief on RCN subscriptions


The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is one of the largest professional unions in the UK, boasting a membership of over 400,000 registered nurses, midwives, nursing students, nurse cadets, healthcare assistants and nursing auxiliaries.

With a full membership for nurses costing almost £200 a year, you’ll be pleased to hear that RCN has a special agreement with HRMC which allows its members to claim back a portion of their membership fees in the form of a tax rebate.

How much can I claim?

The amount of tax relief you can claim depends on the rate of tax you pay per year. For most members, this means you can claim back 20% of your RCN membership every year. You can claim for the last 4 tax years, so could potentially receive a rebate of around £150 – remember there are time limits for claiming.

If you also wear a uniform to work, you can also claim additional tax relief of up to £140 per year. If you are a community nurse and use your car to visit patients in their own home, you may also be eligible to claim Mileage Allowance Relief.
