Social Workers Tax Rebates

Social Workers Tax Rebates

As a social worker it is likely you will pay membership into a professional body or union. As a result you should be eligible to claim for tax relief on your membership fees. Many but not all professional bodies and unions have an agreement with HMRC, which allows for tax relief to be claimed back.

Tax Relief Can Be Claimed For The:

  • General Social Care Council (now HCPC)
  • Health and Care Professions Council
  • Unison
  • British Association of Social Workers

These are just few, so its worth checking to see if tax relief is available for a body or union not in this list.

How Far Back Can I Claim?

A healthcare worker tax rebate claim can be backdated for the last four tax years. A change in your tax code at the end of your claim will mean you will pay less tax in the future.

Can I Claim A Healthcare Worker Tax Rebate For Anything Else?

Social workers can claim for other job related expenses. Popular expenses include using your own car for work purposes, for example traveling to clients in the community. You can also claim tax relief for the washing of your own uniform and using your own home for work purposes.
