Large Charities Meeting

Making Tax Digital

Making Tax Digital is one of the biggest changes to charity finance in the next year, with charities needing to be compliant by April 2019. This meeting will give you an overview of HMRC’s plan for Making Tax Digital and will show you an example of a charity that has already started the process and the challenges that they faced.

This meeting will explore steps charity leaders can take to facilitate a successful change to the new system, what the rules are and what software can be used.

Please note the later start time for this meeting. Following feedback we are trialling a new format to try and make the event more accessible for the group.

This meeting is open to CFG members from £25m+ organisations.
