Charity Finance Directors' Group calls for less red tape on charity trading

Its manifesto also calls for a standardised charity commissioning structure and a tax and legislation monitoring committee

The Charity Finance Directors' Group will next week release an election manifesto calling for the Government to loosen trading restrictions on charities and standardise its charity commissioning practices.

The CFDG also wants the Government to set up a monitoring committee to ensure that charities do not suffer when new taxes and legislation are introduced. It calls for a better deal on Gift Aid and the creation of a social investment wholesale bank.

The manifesto says the Government should use standard forms for funding applications and monitoring reports, commit itself to three-year funding as standard, support consortia in public service tendering and simplify and standardise commissioning to make it easier for charities.
