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.

I have known Alison Johnston for a number of years and have found her advice to be totally ‘spot on’, as is that of the rest of the ‘Dodds Team’. She is so much more than an ‘accountant’ – giving valuable advice on business planning, critiquing ideas and plans and offering the benefit of her experience. She has recently introduced us to ‘Kashflow’ – a tool which allows us to manage our own finances, from issuing invoices to calculating our VAT – invaluable! We are now working with her colleague Rob Bainbridge who has just completed our first set of accounts in our new business and who has been very patient with us and our many questions!! We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Dodd Accountants going forward.
