Board Direction has one vision and that is to help each member find and gain a board appointment. Being able to deduct your Board Direction membership fees from your taxes, is an added benefit.
Every year, as soon as June comes around, we sit with heads bent over statements and receipts, trying to work out how much tax we owe and where we can claim deductions. Now we can offer you some light at the end of the tunnel. The good news is that your Board Direction Membership fees offer a work-related tax deduction, as they are a ‘subscription to a trade, business or professional association‘.
We all know that expenses regarding the earning of income are all tax deductible. But many don’t think about using membership with a professional organisation such as Board Direction as a deductible. But you can; since all our services are directly related to your career development and income earning potential, it’s good to know that it’s possible to deduct your membership fee with Board Direction, in full, from your taxable income.
