Charity VAT and tax

Charity VAT and tax can be a maze of rules and regulations, even for those who are familiar with taxation matters. The fact charities often have multiple income streams and carry out various activities means their tax position can be complicated, especially as tax rules and regulations are constantly changing.

As well as mitigating risks, identifying opportunities for recovery of tax and VAT is not always straightforward. This can have an impact on how your charity generates its funding, carries out its activities and structures itself. Regularly reviewing your tax and VAT affairs ensures risks are managed and available opportunities are identified and maximised.

Our tax and VAT specialists have years of experience working across all areas of the nonprofit sector, ensuring our clients receive an individual service according to their needs. Every charity is unique, so their approach is tailored to suit the needs of the particular charity and the people within. In addition to charities, our tax and VAT specialists have experience spanning a range of other nonprofit organisations.
