Reduced Administrative Burdens for Charities

Posted On November 16, 2018 By mhauk

Administrative burdens for charities

From April 2019, the Government will introduce measures to reduce administrative burdens for charities. These include:

  • An increase from £5,000 to £8,000 in the upper limit of trading charities can carry out without incurring a tax liability where turnover is under £20,000 and from £50,000 to £80,000 where turnover exceeds £200,000.
  • Allowing charity shops using the retail gift aid scheme to send letters to donors every three years when their goods raise less than £20 a year, rather than every tax year.
  • An increase to the individual donation limit under the gift aid small donations scheme to £30, which applies to small collections where it is impractical to obtain a gift aid declaration.
