Howard Lake | 18 February 2006 | News

CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) is launching a new series of discussions designed to bring together charities, business and government on some of the key issues affecting voluntary sector resourcing. The first Breakfast Forum will be held on 16 March at One Great George Street, Westminster, and focus on the impending change in legislation on charities and trading subsidiaries.

In the Chancellor’s Pre-Budget report in December 2005 it was announced that companies owned by more than one charity will be able to donate their profits back to parent charities through Gift Aid.

According to Cathy Pharoah, Director of Research at CAF: “This change in law will allow even small charities to collaborate more effectively and enjoy a valuable tax break which has not been previously available to them.”
