Tax on Courses


?

}{

I plan to do a part time Postgrad course(MSc).

I am in full employment and don't qualify for any help with funding and my
employer aren't willing to help either.

Altogether, the fees will be Approx £4000, can I claim tax in any way on
this amount.

If it makes any odds I live/work and study in Scotland.

Thanks

The expenses must be incurred wholly, exclusively and necessarily in
the performance of the employment duties. If your employer won't pay
for them I very much doubt you can claim.

If you want to claim you need to complete a tax return.

Peter, its not S336 but S250 that relates to training costs. EIM01110 gives
a good outline but in this instance the OP is out of luck.

Section 250 does not give employees tax relief for the costs of
self-financed training where the cost of training is not reimbursed by the
employer.
