Charity tax: Christmas cards can mean problems

Charity tax is a complex subject. Although many would suppose that exemption from tax would make the subject simple, this is far from the truth. Ensuring that a charity client stays within the specific tax exemptions can be tricky, especially when trustees and staff come up with new and interesting ways to raise funds.
