If you are a pathology specialty registrar and a UK tax payer both your trainee registration fees and examination fees are a tax deductible expense and you are eligible for full tax relief. This could save you between 20% and 40% of your fees and you can make a retrospective claim within 4 years of the end of the tax year that you spent the money.
Further information about how to claim tax relief is available on the gov.uk website.
The College will shortly be making a separate application to HMRC for Clinical Scientists FRCPath examinations to be tax deductible.
