Autumn Statement Highlights for the Charity Sector

Budget 2016 Charity Update

Yesterday saw Philip Hammond deliver his first (and last) Autumn Statement as chancellor.
In what was a statement, which focussed on “preparing our country to seize opportunities ahead”, there were thankfully few surprises. Although one key point that you should be aware of is that the government is reforming Gift Aid. Intermediaries will be given more power to make decisions on Gift Aid. This, combined with a more simplified process to the Gift Aid Small Donation Scheme should see an extra ¬£60million being raised in the next five years.
We have gone through all of the documentation and collated the key points you should know in our Autumn Statement Highlights for the Charity Sector.
