EC backs British Donors

Currently, UK donations to UK charities benefit from generous Gift Aid rules,
which do not apply to cross-border EU donations.

Brussels’ Taxation Commissioner Lászl- Kovács said: ‘Gifts to bona fide
charities in other Member States should get the same tax treatment as gifts made
to domestic charities.’

Brussels has given the UK a final warning letter giving it two months to
explain how it will allow such deductions, or face a referral to the European
Court of Justice.
