CTG Charity Member Virtual Meeting

CTG will be holding a virtual meeting for charity members on 22 September 2020.

The meeting will include updates from CTG’s Management Committee and Technical Adviser, Graham Elliott, on recent developments, things to watch out for going forward and the status of discussions with HMRC. There will also be the opportunity for Q&A. CTG will not be able to comment on specific technical questions affecting your charity, but can comment on general points of principle, best practice and signpost to relevant guidance.
