The most common errors made by charities in dealing with tax matters have been catalogued by HM Revenue and Customs, and published by the Charity Tax Group. A top error is with organisations changing personnel or appointing new employees, without changing their details or letting HMRC know. Also high is “claiming excessive Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme” income.

HMRC’s Charities Outreach team was set up in 2014. The team also runs a charities helpline which, according to the statistics, has fielded over 40,000 calls from charities since April 2016.
