The government has taken far more care to consider the results of tax changes for charities in the most recent draft finance bill than in previous years, according to the Charity Tax Group.
The group, which campaigns for a better deal on taxation for the charity sector, said each section of the bill addressed potential concerns for the third sector, as well as the private sector.
Previously, charities have complained that new tax legislation is often drafted without consideration for the impact it will have on the sector, such as with the community infrastructure levy in 2009.
"Throughout the document, they're now flagging up where charities will be affected," said Helen Donoghue, director of the Charity Tax Group. "That's a very welcome step."
She said the move would make it easier for charities to lobby on tax issues that could affect them as they would be included in the process earlier.
