Poll: Over half of nurses yet to claim NMC tax relief

  • Comment

More than half of Nursing Times readers who answered a snap web poll last week have not yet applied for tax relief available to them on their registration fee with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

In our online Poll of the Week, 44% of the 90 respondents answered “yes” when asked whether they had applied for the tax relief, while 55% answered “no”.

Our question follows a larger survey by the NMC itself. It found only 24% of the nurses and midwives it asked were claiming £20 tax relief available to them on their annual £100 registration fee.

The regulator’s survey of 564 registrants also found only 40% of respondents were aware they were entitled to claim in.

More information on how to claim tax relief on the registration fee is available via a page on the NMC’s website.

Nursing Times polls readers each week on a topical question related to nursing in the news. Check to answer the current question:

Are you confident you would recognise the signs and symptoms of acute kidney injury?
