The NCVO has launched a new helpline for members with the express intention of increasing the amount of VAT reclaimed by small charities.
The umbrella body will work with accountancy firm Saffery Champness to offer support and advice to member charities.
The service will be free to NCVO members with incomes of less than £100,000 and provided at a discounted rate to other members.
Richard Williams, director of enterprise at NCVO, said: "Britain's VAT rules are extremely complicated, so many charities lose vital funds because they simply don't realise they are entitled to reclaim all or parts of some VAT payments."
