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 £80.80, while lower rate tax-payers may be able to save £40.40 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.
