Charities VAT Compensation Scheme - reminder of closing date for submission of claims

The Charities VAT Compensation Scheme aims to reduce the VAT burden on charities and to partially compensate them for VAT paid in the day to day running of their organisations. Revenue is at present accepting claims under this scheme in respect of eligible VAT paid in 2020.

This is a reminder to charities that the closing date for submission of claims for the VAT Compensation Scheme is 30 June 2021. It is not possible for claims to be submitted after that date.

Claimants should familiarise themselves with the qualifying criteria for the scheme before submitting a claim.

Information about the scheme is available on the Revenue website.
