Voluntary and Community Sector Funding from HMRC

26 October 2015

HMRC have committed to allocating a guaranteed £1.5m per year over the next 3 years to the voluntary and community sector (VCS) to support customers who need extra help understanding and complying with their tax obligations and claiming their entitlements – this will include supporting those customers who are currently digitally excluded.

Bids for funding can range between £10,000 and £450,000 per annum, with a maximum threshold set at 50% of your organisation’s turnover, according the most recently audited accounts and should include one or more of the following activities:

  • Advice and Support
  • Digital inclusion
  • Specialist support and referrals

The deadline of 8 November 2015, for receipt of completed applications, is fast approaching if you think your organisation might benefit from accessing this funding full details are available on GOV.UK.
