  • Refunds to customers – VAT and Gift Aid rules and opportunities
  • Grants – VAT – is it a payment or a donation – how is the calculation of recoverable VAT affected?
  • VAT recovery calculations  - changes resulting from COVID activities
  • Digital supplies – tax implications that charities need to be aware of.
  • New activities – consider the impact on c-tax exemptions
  • Cessation of subsidiary companies
  • Creative industry tax payments


A link to the webinar and joining instructions will be emailed to registered attendees closer to the time of the event.
