Tax refund from HMRC if you pay subscriptions to a professional body eg a union
First post so please be gentle :-) having seen the recent posts about tax rebates I wondered if people knew this. It's a very simple process. You just write to the tax office telling them the name of the professional body and how much you pay. I pay about £200 a year in union fees. I wrote to them, received a rebate of around £40 a year (I believe this can be backdated up to 3 years) and they adjusted my tax code so it automatically gives me an allowance for this every year now. I know it's not a lot but better in your pocket than the taxman's!
