Making the Most of Gift Aid
(and other really important tricks of the trade)
for heritage and museum Charities and Trusts
It may not be glitzy but as a Charity or Trust you are positively obliged to ‘make the most’ for the benefit of your organisation…but is there a difference between running a business and running business like?..
Whether it’s you, a trustee, governor or a finance employee you’ll benefit from the line up of this free event open to heritage organisations and museums (mainly in the west midlands).
We have assembled some top people – and this is a unique opportunity to hear and ask questions of them all.
Registration: tea and coffee

Ian Gledhill, of the Compliance office, HMRC on Making the most of Gift Aid
Ian travels the country supporting and encouraging charities to use Gift Aid to the full. When you ask ‘Do you know someone who can..?’ – well, he is the man who can..

Adrian Babbidge, Egeria Consulting . Are Collections Inalienable?
How is your collection, or heritage asset, accounted for? Legally and financially? Have you got it right? Don’t assume your collection will not get sold off if you go bust…Worried? Adrian has been advising the museum and heritage world for many years, his wealth of governance knowledge will keep you on the right track.


Alison Godfrey of Godfrey Wilson consultants VAT and Charities
More hoops for charities and a headache for small groups – Alison will help us distinguish whether, when and how to charge or not. Bring your own queries


3 figures to make your case.. making the economic case for your museum .
Whether its funders or local leaders, you can easily impress if you show your impact on tourism, employment and local spend on goods and services. We’ll do the calculations for your site on the spot (AIM Economic Impact Toolkit)… or you can take it away with you to do it yourself.

Plenary… keeping going …what next? Close.
