Tax Relief for UK members
The Royal Economic Society is included on HMRC's approved list of professional organisations where members may claim tax relief for their annual membership subscription. The following information does not constitute financial advice. If you are at all uncertain then you should seek guidance from an accountant or financial adviser.
You may be eligible for tax relief on your RES membership subscription if you are a UK taxpayer in relevant employment. You must pay the membership fee out of your own pocket. You cannot claim tax relief on life membership fees.
Relevant employment is any employment related to membership of the eligible body concerned, in this case economics. It can include full-time, part-time and consultancy work. Society membership must be relevant to the work that you do.
Awarded for the best paper published in The Economic Journal in a given year by anyone who is within five years of being awarded their doctorate. The winner is selected by the editors.
Awarded to the best paper published in The Economic Journal as selected by the RES President, a representative of the Editorial Board and a Council member.
Up to 14 prizes awarded each year for referees judged by the editors to have made an outstanding contribution in this capacity.
