Charity News Spring 2023
Our Charity News brings a thorough review of the latest guidance and support available for the not-for-profit sector, as the cost of living crisis continues to bite. We also consider recent legislative, reporting and tax/VAT developments and other pertinent issues, giving you the inside track on the sector's current hot topics and latest guidance.
For many charities, the rising cost of fuel and energy is a major source of concern. As the days lengthen and the temperatures slowly start to creep up, you would hope that the financial pressures placed on charities from rising energy costs would start to ease, but this is often not the case. The Energy Bills Discount Scheme, which applies from April 2023 to March 2024, is less generous than its predecessor, and some elements of the discount need to be applied for, as we explain.
It's been a busy few months at the Charity Commission, which has been updating its guidance for implementation of Charities Act 2022 and a host of other areas. We draw out the relevant details in this single document to make it easier for charity leaders to stay up to date.
