Concessionary Fees

New graduates – those who have graduated within the last two years. The concessionary rate will apply for five years from the point of joining.

Economically developing areas (EDAs) – for those who are located in EDA countries as defined by the RSS.

Tax relief on your membership fees

If you pay for your own RSS membership and are a UK tax payer, your membership fee might be eligible for tax relief. The RSS is an HMRC-approved professional body and is included on page 117 of 132 of List 3.

If you complete a self-assessment form you can note the fee paid on Form SA 102. If you do not complete a self-assessment form you can advise HMRC of your membership fees so they can adjust your tax code by completing and returning Form P87.

If you have any questions, please contact your local tax office.
