HM Revenue and Customs has announced it will allocate £1.6m in the year from April 2019 to charities who can offer extra help to members of the public to understand and comply with their tax obligations and claim their entitlements.
HMRC is looking for charities to help members of the public to form or rebuild a relationship with the organisation that enables them to engage directly with it in the future.
It is inviting bids for funding of between £10,000 and £450,000, with a maximum threshold set at 50 per cent of the charity’s turnover.
Interested charities must apply online by 2 November, with successful applicants notified by 17 December.
From 2020, HMRC plans to develop a longer term strategy, working with charities to provide support for customers who need extra help.
