Charity taxation

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

  • An increase from £5,000 to £8,000 in the upper limit for 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.

Tax abuse and insolvency

Following royal assent of Finance Bill 2019/20, directors and other persons involved in tax avoidance, evasion or any act that is deemed unethical will be jointly and severally liable for company tax liabilities, where there is a risk the company may deliberately enter insolvency.
