Employers Tip July 2010- Claim relief for Trade Union Subscriptions

Attention Trade Union members: are you claiming your full tax credit entitlements?

Where an employee is a member of a trade union at anytime during the tax year, regardless of the amount paid or the length of time they were a member of the trade union, they will be entitled to a tax credit. The maximum tax credit of 70 Euro is due even if the employee for example only paid 20 Euro for trade union subscriptions in the tax year.
