Sayer Vincent has updated four of its free Made Simple guides – Employee & volunteer taxation; Gift Aid; International aspects of VAT and Tax for charity fundraisers to reflect changes to rules and regulations.
Key updates include:
- The new VAT rules that apply to cross border transactions with effect from 1 January 2021. With the UK no longer part of the EU’s VAT regime (except Northern Ireland), the International aspects of VAT guide offers guidance on the rules.
- The new IR35 rules, which came into effect from 6 April 2021. The Employee & volunteer guide covers what charities need to be aware of and the special rules for certain types of worker. This guide also includes a section on the key employment and volunteer-related measures taken by the UK government in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Guidance from HMRC in relation to Gift Aid and Tax for charity fundraisers, including HMRC’s latest model wording for the tax to cover statement, which changed in November 2020.
Charity auditors Sayer Vincent‘s free guides are designed for finance professionals, managers and Trustees in charities and provide practical guidance on different finance topics. There are 21 guides in total covering technical areas such as tax and VAT treatments as well as information management areas.
Jonathan Orchard, Partner at Sayer Vincent said:
