Trainee paramedics have £300 per month deducted from net pay for 30 months (£9,000). University course. Because this is the initial training, not updating knowledge & skills, it would appear to me that HMRC will probably not allow a claim for the expenses against tax. However as it is a mandatory and essential part of training would Commrs v Banerjee apply? Has any one out there had experiance of this, and has anyone been successful?
