Reforming Charity Tax Reliefs- A Chance to Have Your Say

There hasn't been a full review of charity taxation and reliefs for over 20 years and the world in which the voluntary sector operates has changed a lot since then! Tax reliefs for charities are estimated to be worth £3.77bn a year, the main ones being business rates relief, Gift Aid and VAT relief.

So how can the system be improved?

NCVO have established the Charity Tax Commission. It's assessing how the system can be modernised to help charities like yours make an even greater contribution to society.
