Charities and tax
As a charity you can get certain tax reliefs. To benefit you must be recognised by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
When you need to pay tax
Your charity may need to pay tax if you’ve:
- received income that doesn’t qualify for tax relief
- spent any of your income on non-charitable purposes
You need to complete a tax return if your charity has tax to pay.
Community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) get different tax reliefs.
