Q. Can I claim tax relief on my UCU fees?
A. Teachers, Tutors and Lecturers paying professional fees into the University and College Union can usually claim tax relief on those fees. HMRC have agreed that tax relief can be claimed on 67% of the annual membership fee.
If you have not claimed before for your UCU fees it is generally possible to make a UCU tax rebate claim for the last four tax years. When your claim has completed and you have received your tax rebate for the last four years your tax code will usually be increased, as the allowance will be put into your code for your UCU fees. This will result in you paying less tax in future years in your profession, unless your circumstances change.
When making a UCU tax rebate claim many education professionals can also claim a tax rebate for other professional fees and for purchasing and laundering specialist clothing. In addition tax relief can be claimed for using their own car for business travel and equipment purchased for work purposes.

"A colleague at school told me that I may be able to claim some tax back for my union membership. I contacted your company via email and you called me back within the hour. I was really pleased with your prompt service and will be recommending you to my friends."
