You must notify the Membership Operations Team immediately if your circumstances have changed and will have an impact on your membership.

Claiming tax relief (UK only)

RCR subscriptions are approved by HM Revenue & Customs as tax deductible. If you are a UK taxpayer you can save 20-40% of the cost of your membership subscription depending on your marginal rate of tax and you can use your subscription receipt that is automatically emailed to you each year following fee payment for this purpose. If you would like confirmation of the amounts you have paid the RCR for this or prior year’s subscriptions for inclusion on your tax return, please refer to your online account by logging in to MyRCR and going to the 'My Receipts' section, where you will be able to request a receipt for last year's fees. If you have difficulties locating this, please email 

You may also be able to backdate your claim for previous years. Please contact your tax advisor or HM Revenue and Customs for advice concerning your individual claim and circumstances. Information on making a claim is available from HM Revenue and Customs on 0845 300 0627 or on the HMRC website. How much you get back will depend on a number of factors including your subscription fee level and your tax situation.
