Can I claim NMC tax relief?
Yes. If you pay for your NMC fee yourself you will be eligible to claim a tax rebate on the cost. All registered Nurses need to be a member of the Nursing Midwifery Council ( NMC ), and most need to pay for it themselves. An agreement is in place that tax relief can be claimed back on 100% of the cost of NMC registration.
How far back can I claim for?
Four years is as far back as you can go. When you make a claim you’ll get any tax relief you are owed for the last four years, and get a new tax code meaning you will pay less tax in the future.
Can I claim for anything else?
It’s likely that as a Nurse or healthcare professional you’ll have other expenses because of your job. Tax relief can be claimed back on some of these costs like:
- Other professional bodies or a union for example the RCN or UNISON, if this is the case these fees are normally available for tax relief and can be included in your NMC tax relief claim.
- Washing of your own uniform and you are not provided facilities by your employer,
- Shoes and tights
- Using your own car in the course of your duties, but not for normal commuting,
- Equipment that you have to buy for work
