Tax relief and receipts

The GMC is on the list of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) approved organisations. This means you may be entitled to tax relief on your registration fee. Further information can be found on the HMRC website.

You can print receipts for payments made in the last six years from your GMC Online account.
