Budget 2015 – Charities

Charities

The popular Gift Aid Small Donations scheme which allows charities to reclaim gift aid on cash donations without obtaining gift aid declarations is to be extended.  From April 2016 charities will be able to use the scheme to claim gift aid on donations up to £8,000, rather than the current £5,000. This will increase the maximum gift aid reclaim under the scheme by £750 to £2,000.

Blood bikes are to be able to reclaim VAT refunds on expenses from 1 April 2015, joining hospices and search and rescue charities.

The Listed Places of Worship – Roof Repair Fund (or Church Roof Fund) is to be given an extra £40m. This fund allows churches and other places of worship to apply for grants of between £10k and £100k to fund urgent roof repairs.

What's the best thing about Dodd & Co? Without doubt - Dean and Jonathan.  Great guys - fun to be with and very knowledgeable. And the worst? Not got one - only have good things to say.
