Tuition Fees

Do you know you are entitled to tax back on payment of college/tuition expenses? Not just for you but also for your entire family on either full time or part time courses! Tax relief is available at the standard rate even if you choose to pay for a course in instalments, you may still be eligible.

Remember you can claim this for the previous 4 years.


The tax relief available is at the standard rate of tax, currently 20%. However, the first €3,000 is disregarded, regardless of the amount that you spend and is capped at €7,000.

This tax relief is applicable per course, per student, per college year. However, tax relief cannot be claimed against examination fees, registration fees and administration fees.

Any part of your tuition fees covered directly or indirectly by grants, scholarships, by your employer or other financial aid will not be eligible for tax relief.

Approved undergraduate courses must be of at least 2 years in duration and approved postgraduate courses must be at least 1 academic year in duration and the candidate must already hold a primary degree.

No Refund, No Fee - Straightforward as that!

PAYE individuals in receipt of PAYE income only, can avail of our ‘No Refund -No Fee’ policy. If you are due a tax refund our fee will be 10% plus VAT of any tax refund due to you and remember, there is no upfront payment or minimum charges – our fee is only due when you receive your tax refund.
