HMRC launches Charities Digital Service

HMRC is changing the way charities can submit their details for tax purposes to allow them to register online.

The new digital service has in-built checks and guidance to help organisations provide the right information and supporting documentation so HMRC can confirm their tax status.

Roughly 15,500 new charities register with the tax authority per annum.

“We are completely changing the way we work with our customers – including charities,” said HMRC’s chief digital and information officer, Mark Dearnley. “Our new digital services are straightforward, easy to use and convenient.”

 “The charities service minimises the risk of making mistakes so applications are less likely to be returned to the organisation,” he added.
