Finance Act 2012 Briefing Paper

By Kevin Russell | 28 November 2012

Our in depth analysis of the implications of the Finance Act 2012 for churches and Christian charities is now available on our website here.

The Paper examines the Gift Aid and VAT measures announced in the 2012 Budget Statement, through the lens of churches and Christian charities. A section on using Gift Aid as a financial planning tool will help donors in their giving decisions. For instance, a number of worked examples show how giving to charity can significantly improve a donor’s personal tax or benefits position.

The Paper also covers previous announcements which are only just being introduced, including the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme and the forthcoming introduction of online filing of Gift Aid claims.
