Refund Policy

You have the right to cancel your subscription and receive a refund if you do so within seven working days of payment. In order to do this you will need to call 01625 664520. If we do not receive payment authorisation or any authorisation is subsequently cancelled, we may immediately terminate or suspend your membership.

Tax Relief

IRMS is on the Approved Professional Organisations register for claiming tax relief on ‘professional fees and subscriptions’ under Section 344 of the Income Tax (Earnings & Pensions) Act 2003.

What this means for our individual members is that for a given tax year (2016-17 for example), where you pay for your IRMS membership yourself, and this is not paid for or reimbursed by your employer, you can claim a percentage of your membership fee back from HMRC as income tax relief. The exact rate you are eligible to claim varies depending on your personal income tax position as determined by HMRC therefore this will vary from member to member. Please note this does not apply to our student or honorary members where you pay no fees.

More information, including how to apply for this relief, can be found at www.gov.uk/tax-relief-for-employees/professional-fees-and-subscriptions. If you have any queries of how this specifically relates to the IRMS please get in touch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . If you have any queries with regards to the application process itself please contact the HMRC helpdesk as the process is not something we can advise on.

For those that do have their membership reimbursed by an employer this also means that your employer can also seek some tax relief for the payment they have made. If you simply inform them that we are on the register they can investigate our approval online and progress accordingly.
