Corporation tax for non-profits


We are a non-profit organization, working in overseas development and conservation and registered as a company limited by guarantee in England since 2005.   We have just received the CT04 Corporation Tax review form and I would just like some advice on filling it out. We have a small reserve fund but do not make any profit, and rely on donations from charitable trust funds and private individuals.  All our staff are volunteers. I assumed that we would not be liable for Corporation Tax, but I just wanted to know what to expect from HMRC when I return the form.

Thanks, Chris

You say "all spent on charitable work"

Are you also registered with the Charity Commission?

You don't need to be a registered charity to reclaim gift aid
