Approved professional organisations and learned societies

HMRC has updated the list of professional bodies and learned societies (also known as List 3) with tax-deductible fees.

List 3 is updated periodically and includes all bodies approved by the Commissioners for HMRC up to 2 June 2015. It shows:

  • professional bodies and learned societies, approved by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for the purposes of Section 344 ITEPA 2003 (formerly S201 ICTA 1988)
  • details of statutory fees or contributions allowable for earlier years 2003-04 onwards are within S343 ITEPA 2003 (for earlier years S201(2) ICTA 1988).

Professional organisations can apply for approval for tax relief using form P356.
