*** If you join or upgrade in the same year that you qualified, you will be charged a reduced pro-rated amount from the date you join or upgrade for the remainder of that year and the following year. Therefore if you both qualify and upgrade to Member in 2014, your membership will remain valid until the end of February 2016.

Reclaiming your tax

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is an HMRC approved (List 3) professional body. If you are a UK taxpayer, the fee you pay for your membership, and your Faculty membership, may be tax-deductible (eligible for tax relief).

Higher rate tax-payers may be entitled to tax relief of £76, while lower rate tax-payers may be able to save £38 on their Society membership fees.

We suggest that if you wish to claim tax relief against your professional fees, it would be best to contact your local HMRC office, noting to them that the Royal Pharmaceutical Society is an approved (List 3) professional body.

To help you, we've created a standard letter which you can use when writing to your local HMRC office.

Please note: Tax relief can only be claimed if the member is working and their membership is relevant to the job they are working in.

Become a part of the Society to get access to a great range of member benefits.
