Consultation on VAT Relief for Charitable Donations of Everyday Items by Businesses

  • HM Treasury is launching a 12-week consultation on a new VAT relief for charitable donations
  • The relief would apply to donations of low-value household goods to encourage donations from businesses to charities
  • Items that would qualify for the relief include hygiene products, second-hand items from hotels, and cleaning supplies
  • The relief would not extend to goods donated for charities to use, such as new IT equipment
  • The aim of the relief is to eliminate the VAT cost to businesses donating goods to charities
  • Further views on the likelihood of the relief being introduced will be provided after the consultation outcome is published
