HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) allow individuals to claim tax relief on professional subscriptions or fees which have to be paid in order to carry out a job. This includes our registration fees. 

You are able to claim for the last four years and claims may only be made where you pay the fee yourself. 

You can also claim tax relief for subscriptions to some professional bodies and trade unions if they are included on the list of approved professional organisations and learned societies.

You may also be able to claim for laundering of your uniform (if your employer does not provide you with free laundry facilities or cleaning vouchers) and for tights and shoes purchased as part of your uniform.

How to claim tax relief

You can only claim tax relief via HMRC – we cannot do this for you. 

Check the HMRC website to find out how to claim and the time limits for receiving tax relief on payments in previous years.

For information about registration fee payments you have made, including printing payment receipts, log in to your NMC Online account.

HMRC does not normally require written confirmation from us of the payments you have made. However, we can provide your payment history over the phone on 020 7333 9333.
