After caravan and pasty tax climbdowns, charity tax needs to follow suit
We have responded to the Treasury's plans to drop the controversial tax rises on pasties and caravans, saying that they need to do the same with the charity tax.
Sir Stuart Etherington, our Chief Executive, said:
"The concessions from the Chancellor show that he is willing to listen to reason following a period of genuine consultation. We hope he will apply the same logic to the much maligned 'charity tax'.
"The cap on Gift Aid is already putting off donors. It is affecting the vital work undertaken by charities both large and small, be that advancing medical research, supporting returning veterans or caring for the elderly."
Give it Back George is a campaign led by NCVO, the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and the Philanthropy Review, which calls on the Chancellor to reverse his decision to cap personal tax relief for charitable giving.
