Direct debit is our preferred method of payment and carries a discounted fee, reflecting the lower administrative costs.

Claiming Tax Relief on your Subscription Fee

The AUA subscription has been approved for Income Tax relief under Section 201 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 with effect from 1 April 1993. This applies to UK members who are in employment. Members must pay the full subscription to AUA and claim relief from the Inland Revenue. If there are any queries members should refer to the Inland Revenue Head Office Reference: SAPP/T1644/19/1994/JEM. Tax relief at the basic rate is currently 22% and 40% at higher rate. Tax relief can be claimed retrospectively.

If you have any queries about completing forms please contact your local Inland Revenue Office. The tax relief you are entitled to depends on the rate of tax you paid. From April 1993 - April 1996 the basic rate was 25% but changed to 24% in April 1996. The higher rate was 40%.
