unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the vitally important work the charity sector does in the UK, which is why we currently provide tax relief to charities and donors worth over £5 billion per year. This includes over £1.3 billion for Gift Aid alone and a zero rate of VAT for the construction of buildings used for relevant charitable purposes. The zero rate means that charities do not pay tax on the construction of new buildings or services closely connected to the construction of a new building.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government’s preferred approach to customs, the facilitated customs arrangement (FCA), would avoid any need for customs declarations on cross-border trade and would ensure there are no stops or checks at the land border. The FCA will therefore fully deliver on the Government’s commitments to avoid a hard land border.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is also seeking to be at the cutting edge of global customs policy. As the Government outlined in the “future customs arrangements” paper in August 2017, it has been exploring possible ways in which to use future advancements in technology to streamline the trading process; including by simplifying existing procedures to reduce burdens on business, or speeding up some authorisation processes through increased automation. The UK will look to implement such innovations, bilaterally or unilaterally, to promote the greatest possible trade with the rest of the world.</p> more like this
