What we do

The Charity Tax Group (CTG) has over 700 members of all sizes, representing all types of charitable activity. It was established in 1982 to make representations to Government on charity taxation and has since become the leading voice for the sector on this issue.

We have persuaded successive Governments to introduce a range of tax reliefs, as well as arguing successfully that existing concessions should be maintained.

CTG’s purpose is to represent to Government the views of its members on tax issues affecting charities. We carry out our objectives through a number of activities including:

  • Making regular representations to Ministers and Members of Parliament
  • Holding regular meetings with officials at HM Revenue & Customs and the HM Treasury
  • Monitoring UK and EU developments likely to affect the sector
  • Responding to consultation papers
  • Lobbying on legislation affecting the tax position of charities
  • Holding regular members meetings
  • Issuing regular briefings to members.
