Does your charity fund charities or projects overseas?

BWB and Sayer Vincent jointly invite you to a seminar which explores the legal and practical considerations in respect of changes made to tax legislation by The Finance Act 2010 and the effect of the HMRC Guidance on Payments to Overseas Bodies.

Key issues addressed include:

· what is meant by “applied for charitable purposes” in relation to payments made to overseas bodies

· how trustees should take “reasonable” steps to ensure the charitable application of funds

· reporting and verification requirements in relation to payments overseas
