ABPCO membership now tax deductible

The
Association of British Professional Conference Organisers
(ABPCO)
has been awarded HMRC status, which means the association’s membership fees are tax deductible.

By
achieving HMRC status, ABPCO has been recognised as a professional
organisation that benefits its members using education and best practice
opportunities. According to HMRC EIM32900,
the costs of membership are tax-deductible if
“the activities of the body are of direct benefit to, or concern the
profession practised in, the performance of the duties of the
employment”.

“HMRC
status further enhances ABPCO as a professional organisation focussed
on benefiting its members,” says Chair of ABPCO Jennifer Jenkins
(pictured).

“The
Government recognises that what we are doing has a real impact on the
industry and the tax deductible nature of membership will help us to
deliver an even stronger service for
our members.

“Many
industry professionals will only work with organisations if they are on
HMRC’s approved list. The status helps us to continue building the
ABPCO brand and it does that by proving
the professionalism of the entire organisation.”

The status was given to ABPCO following a process in which the organisation had to provide accounts and business plans.
