Can I claim my membership fee and booking fees as a tax-deductible expense?

19th August 2020 by Richard Fieldhouse

Yes, NASGP is approved by HMRC as a professional organisation, and you can claim tax relief on your membership subscriptions. This GOV.UK page tells you more (we’re listed under ‘S’ as ‘Sessional GPs National Association of’).

Any booking fees are also tax deductible, as they’re an expense incurred in doing your job. Your accountant can advise you on how to classify these in your individual case.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
