Membership FAQs

Can I claim tax relief on my CSP annual subscription?

As a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy it is possible to claim tax relief on the full annual subscription. This applies to physiotherapists and associate members in related employment. The amount of the subscription paid by an employed member in the tax year can be deducted from the income earned from that employment.

If you meet the conditions for tax relief for earlier years, and did not receive any relief for those years, you can still claim for the previous four years.

Additionally, you may be entitled to claim an annual tax allowance of £100 for the cost of cleaning uniforms as well as fees to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and other relevant subscriptions connected with your work.

Completing the application for tax relief is surprisingly quick and easy. For further details including an application form to claim tax relief listing payments made for your membership subscription, please see CSP information paper CSPTAX. You do not need to send a separate receipt unless you are specifically requested to do so.

If you get stuck at all, please contact the CSP's Enquiries Team (ET) (see below).

If you need a tax receipt for any other purpose or your tax office have requested it after you have submitted the form CSP information paper CSPTAX please request one using our tax receipt request form.
