National Council for Voluntary Organisations Press Release:
After caravan and pasty tax climbdowns, charity tax needs to follow suit.
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has responded to the Treasury's plans to drop the controversial tax rises on pasties and caravans, saying that they need to do the same with the charity tax.
Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, said: "The concessions from the Chancellor show that he is willing to listen to reason following a period of genuine consultation. We hope he will apply the same logic to the much maligned 'charity tax'.
"The cap on Gift Aid is already putting off donors. It is affecting the vital work undertaken by charities both large and small, be that advancing medical research, supporting returning veterans or caring for the elderly."
