Free event: Help shape the charity tax system

speech bubbles stating Your Voice Matters

 3rd July

14.00 – 16.00 GMCVO Manchester

The Chair of the Charity Tax Commission, Sir Nicholas Montagu, has written a provocative article asking whether we should question the indiscriminate approach to charitable tax reliefs. He suggests we might want to start asking some awkward questions about whether public benefit could be increased if we distinguished between charities by size, purpose, demonstrable impact, geographical location or other criteria.

The piece highlights the kind of bold ideas for reform that the commission is keen to explore through its call for evidence and public evidence sessions.

If you’d like to join the debate register here for a free place at our upcoming event on

3 July, 14.00 – 16.00, Manchester, in partnership with GMCVO.
