VAT Treatment of Charity Challenge Events

HMRC have issued revised guidance on Charity Challenge Events, including those that qualify for the VAT Charity Fundraising Exemption.

Following representations from the charity sector HMRC have been working with them to produce revised guidance to assist charities to determine the correct VAT liability of such events.
