We are delighted to inform you that BANT’s Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday March 14th 2015 at the Cavendish Conference Centre, 22 Duchess Mews, London W1G 9DT from 9.30am.
As we enter the festive period, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very happy and peaceful festive season on behalf of BANT Council, Committees and Teams. I hope you have had a successful year and that you have some great plans in place for your businesses in 2015. We will be working hard to give you every support possible as we continue on our journey to make Nutritional Therapy a recognised healthcare option.
Don’t forget your personal tax returns are due to be submitted to HMRC by the end of January 2015 and BANT members can claim back their membership fees against tax. HMRC approved our application for income tax relief for BANT’s professional fees back in July and we have been added to the approved list at HMRC. It takes several months for BANT to appear on the official list, so members who are completing their tax returns before the list is updated, should inform staff at HMRC that BANT is newly approved to the list of approved bodies and should quote the following reference: RH/T1644/18/2014/HEM.
Following the publication of the Association for Nutrition 2014 report, BANT can confirm that it met with AfN in 2013. The two organisations agreed to compare respective registration requirements and to look at how AfN and BANT might dual accredit clinical training modules that AfN wants to put in place for its new clinical healthcare specialism. This work is presently on-hold but BANT looks forward to helping AfN in the future.
