Chair: Paul Bater, Wellcome Trust
This working party is seeking contributors. If you would like to contribute to this report, please contact Paul Bater
The Standing Tax Committee was established in 2007 to act as a standing committee that would be available on a continuing basis to represent the CLA on any tax matters concerning charities, their trustees and staff, and their supporters. The Tax Committee’s remit does not extend to campaigning for fundamental changes in government policy on charity taxation, nor does it provide tax advice to CLA members. The Committee normally meets at least twice a year to consider the various tax policy announcements by the Government, to review proposed legislation and to comment on any other charity tax issues as they arise. The timing of these meetings depends on the Government’s fiscal policy cycle, so we are currently waiting to see how the move away from an Autumn Statement will affect the timing of the issue of consultation documents and the publication of draft legislation. As is the case with the CLA’s regular working parties, the Tax Committee’s responses to government consultations are made freely available to CLA members via the CLA website.
A member of the Tax Committee represents the CLA on the Charity Tax Forum convened by HMRC. The Forum normally meets at least three times a year to discuss the operation of the various tax issues that impact on charities. The minutes of these meetings are published by HMRC at https://www.gov.uk/government/groups/charity-tax-forum.
Members who are interested in joining the Tax Committee or who wish to contribute to a particular response without any further commitment are welcome to contact the chair of the Tax Committee. Any enquiries should be addressed to the current chair, Paul Bater, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
