Charities Finance Group / Institute of Fundraising Charities and Tax Survey

Survey of British adults on behalf of Charities Finance Group and Institute of Fundraising on charities and tax.

  • Four in five GB adults say that charities should not pay tax on money that is donated to them.
  • Three in ten British adults say that UK charities should not pay any of the taxes tested.
  • About three in five GB adults say that the government should amend VAT laws to allow charities to reclaim VAT on all products and services in order to reduce charities’ tax bills.
  • When thinking about how Brexit will affect the UK, three in ten GB adults say that the UK Government should consult charities and civil society organisations about deciding future policies (once the UK has left the EU).
