Income tax relief on your UCU subscription

A reminder to check your UCU membership record to ensure that you are paying the correct subscription rates, as failure to do so may disqualify you from receiving legal advice and other benefits from UCU.

UCU members can claim 67% tax relief on the total annual subscription they have paid to UCU – up to the last four years. Subscriptions start on 1st Sept each year so please consider this carefully when making your calculations. HMRC has issued the following advice to the union:

‘Approval is granted on the basis that tax relief is restricted to 67% of the total annual subscription. Please ensure that members are aware that the figure to be shown on their tax return is the allowable figure equal to the 67% of the total annual subscription.’

Further information, including a UCU tax reckoner, worked example and tax relief claim form can be found here.
