NOTE: The membership year with IRMS runs from 01 January to 31 December. Should you wish to join us midway through the year (after the end of June), we offer half-price membership for each of the above rates, with a full renewal then due at the start of the next calendar year. This offer applies to new members only, as renewals are due in January of the new membership year.
The IRMS is on the Approved Professional Organisations register for claiming tax relief on ‘professional fees and subscriptions’ under the Income Tax (Earnings & Pensions) Act 2003.
This allows you to claim a percentage of your membership fee back from HMRC as income tax relief, when you pay for your IRMS membership yourself - i.e. it is not paid for or reimbursed by your employer.
For those that have their membership paid or reimbursed by their employer, the organisation can seek some tax relief - just let your payroll team know we are on the register and they can make the claim.
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, who pay no fees.
More information, including how to apply for this relief, can be found on the GOV.UK website. If you have any queries on how this relates to the IRMS please get in touch. If you have a query about the application process itself, please contact the HMRC helpdesk as we are unable to advise on this.
