Has anyone claimed tax relief on their CIPD membership fees?
I'm aware that you can claim tax relief on fees or subscriptions you pay to approved professional organisations. This only seems to apply however if you have to be a member of an organisation to do your job.
My employer encourages and supports it's HR staff to be CIPD qualified (and CMI qualified) and I'm therefore qualified to associate CIPD level and have Chartered CMI. However, this is now not an absolute requirement and they have employed people without any CIPD qualifications but with experience and who have relevant skills in other areas that are beneficial to the wider team.
Before I contact HMRC I'm keen to hear what other people have done?
Thanks in advance,
