Members who pay their own subscription and the cost was not reclaimed from their employer, may qualify for tax relief for up to four years on their subscriptions cost.
See HMRCs List 3: Deduction for fees and subscriptions paid to professional bodies or learned societies for more details (the RTPI is listed under T as "Town Planning institute, Royal").
We do not give tax advice. Contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to find out about claiming tax relief.
Members can contact us for details of payments made in the last 4 years. A letter can be provided but HM Revenue & Customs rarely require this.
RTPI Subscriptions are exempt from VAT and therefore no VAT can be recovered on them.
