Claiming Tax Relief on the CORU Annual Retention Fee

CORU-registered professionals may claim tax relief (at 20%) against the CORU annual retention fee where there is a statutory requirement for registration with CORU. This does not apply when a register is still open for grandparenting and whilst the relevant title is not protected.

The documentary evidence of payment of your annual retention fee is the payment receipt. The receipt is now automatically emailed to registrants after online renewal has taken place.

If you cannot retrieve your receipt, you can log in and resend the receipt or print a copy of that receipt or retention certificate. To do so, please log in to your online CORU account and enter your registration number, PIN number and your date of birth.

Your registration number and PIN is on your renewal notice and is also presented in renewal reminder emails that are issued by CORU. You may also contact CORU to be emailed your renewal credentials.

When you have successfully logged in to your online account, click on the Certificate and Receipt option on the menu on the left hand side of the page to view and print your receipt or Certificate of Retention. You may receive the message that “you do not need to renew at this time” when you log in.

If you are having difficulty with this or cannot find your renewal PIN, please contact registration@coru.ie and the Registration Department will be happy to help you.

Once you have your payment receipt, you can contact Revenue to claim the tax relief on your annual retention fee. If you have any queries, please contact Revenue directly as this process is managed by them.
