Is Tax on Your Radar? Strategy, Tax Implications and Making the Most of VAT

It is a common misconception that charities have a blanket exemption on tax, whether that be direct (corporate/ income) or indirect (VAT) tax and therefore it is often not even considered until it is too late. However, failure to consider or even be aware of tax can be costly, in terms of missed opportunities, shortfalls in contribution or even fines and penalties.

In developing new opportunities and even in delivering the same services under different arrangements, tax needs to be on your radar. This masterclass, presented by our member firm MHA Carpenter Box, will cover how you can structure strategic plans in a way that furthers the charitable purposes and either minimises the impact of tax or at least factors in the impact of tax.
