NIVAS members, who are UK tax payers, can claim tax relief on NIVAS membership subscriptions. Please note that NIVAS is unable to offer tax advice, so all enquiries must be made to HMRC. HMRC will require the following details in writing from members or their employers:

  • The date you became a member of NIVAS
  • The annual subscription cost (they will need to be advised every time there is a increase in subscriptions to ensure you claim the correct amount)

HMRC will adjust your tax code accordingly, and any relief will be reflected in the salary paid by your employer (if you are self employed then membership subscriptions should be included in your tax return). Further details are available from the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) website: www.hmrc.gov.uk

GDPR - What does this mean for NIVAS members?

We have made a few changes as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018, and as a result you will be required to renew your NIVAS membership.

If you do not renew your NIVAS membership, you will no longer receive any NIVAS related information and therefore not be considered a NIVAS member.

When you receive the reminder, please renew your membership to ensure that you receive NIVAS information.

If any of your personal details change, please email nivas@openhealthgroup.com and notify us so we can update our records.

If you have any questions, please contact nivas@openhealthgroup.com
