As a charitable organisation, there are a wide range of exemptions you can make the most of for taxes, including corporation tax, income tax, stamp duty and business rates. You can also benefit from tax reliefs such as Gift Aid and Social Investment Tax Relief,  which provide further opportunities for charities to thrive. 

Our not-for-profit tax team help to ensure your charity is fully tax-compliant and structured optimally to make the best use of the reliefs you’re entitled to.

What sets our charity tax services apart?

Unlike others, we have separate dedicated tax specialists who work within our charity and not-for-profit team. Having chosen to specialise in the sector, most have trained as charity experts from day one. This means you have a team of experts at your disposal who really understand your sector and needs.

You can count on regular tax communications on developments and insights relevant to your industry, including our annual charity tax updates after the Chancellor’s Autumn and Spring Budgets. We also offer topical tax update seminars and bespoke fundraising workshops, keeping you up to speed with the latest requirements and opportunities.
