I have been speaking to a couple of people this morning and it turns out they werent aware of this, I think most of you will be but just in case here ya go

Tax Relief on SIA Licence Fee
SIA negotiates tax relief for security workers
The Security Industry Authority has gained agreement from the Inland Revenue for the SIA licence fee to be tax deductible – which is great news for those employed in the private security industry.
The Inland Revenue has agreed to update existing tax relief regulations so that SIA licence fees paid by workers in the private security industry will qualify for the relief.
Security workers who pay their own licence fee will be able to claim tax relief against their taxable income. For a worker paying the basic rate of tax the relief is worth £41.80, and for those on a higher tax rate the relief is £76.80.
There will also be no tax or national insurance liability where an employer is paying the fee on behalf of employees.
The Inland Revenue regulation that covers the relief is The Income Tax (Professional Fees) Order 2004 SI No.1360.
To claim the relief contact your nearest Inland Revenue enquiry centre, details of which can be found in the telephone book or on the Inland Revenue's web site.

Again, not wishing to insult anyones intelligence here but alot of people dont take advantage of this, and don't apply for it, but it takes the sting out of the £245 fee, not much but a little.

I claimed the relief for my first badge last October, 2 years after it had been issued, am not sure if they have changed it now but you should be ok for it

As Kate said you should be fine Paul, as I've claimed for mine for the last 4 years & had it successfully backdated my friend! :D

Also do you know if you wear a uniform for work & have to wash it yourself then you can claim 'tax relief' on that too!? ;)
