There are tax incentives already available for businesses which support not-for-profit and charitable organisations. Qualifying donations receive corporation tax relief, and sponsorship payments are tax deductible as business expenses.

Charities whose main purpose is to provide air ambulance services have been included in the VAT refund scheme since April 2014, meaning they can claim refunds of VAT incurred on their non-business activities.
