Claiming tax relief on AAT registration fees

Kram Registered Posts: 4 New contributor 🐸

Has anyone else claimed tax relief on their Q2022 AAT registration fees?

I did for Level 2, and am just reading up on claiming for Level 3 and upon reading about claiming on the HMRC website I am unsure if I was correct in claiming for level 2. It wasn't an annual subscription, and AAT qualifications are relevant to my job. Registration fees for Q2022 last for the life of the syllabus and are not lifelong so it may have been ok. I suppose I can speak to HMRC to clarify but thought I would get the thoughts of those on here.

You can claim tax relief on:

professional membership fees, if you must pay the fees to be able to do your job
annual subscriptions you pay to approved professional bodies or learned societies if being a member of that body or society is relevant to your job
You cannot claim tax relief on life membership subscriptions, or for professional membership fees or annual subscriptions you:

have not paid yourself (for example if your employer has paid for them)
have paid to professional organisations that are not approved by HMRC
Your organisation can tell you how much tax you’re allowed to claim back.

You can claim for this tax year and the 4 previous tax years.
