Sorry, but you are unable to claim tax relief on your subscription. However, you may choose to make a Gift Aid declaration which means the amount you pay is reduced (by the equivalent of tax at the basic rate). You should be able to claim tax relief in retrospect for earlier year's subscriptions. Contact your Tax Inspector with details.
