Funding of £30,000 to £600,000 per year

HMRC is looking for voluntary and community sector organisations to support it in helping customers hardest to reach, who cannot or will not interact directly with them and need extra support in doing so.

It has secured £5.5 million for a three-year programme from April 2024 to March 2027 (£1.835 million per year), to fund voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations to help provide advice and support to customers who need extra help in understanding and complying with their tax obligations and claiming their entitlements, including those who are digitally excluded.

The revenue is inviting bids for funding of between £30,000 and £600,000 per year, with a maximum threshold set at 50% of your organisation’s turnover (last audited accounts).

The application window opened on Monday 24 July 2023 and the window closes at 11.59 pm on Monday 21 August 2023.

Further information on the application process, including the funding aims and eligibility criteria, can be found on HMRC’s website.

HMRC is also hosting webinars on Wednesday 26 July and Tuesday 8 August 2023 to answer queries related to the application process, eligibility criteria, and other important details.
