Including Value-added Tax in your budget and application
You may need to pay VAT on purchases made as part of your project and we can pay for this within our grant.
Make sure you check whether VAT needs to be included when you develop your budget. The amount of funding you request should only include VAT where you don’t intend to, or can’t, recover the VAT at a later date. If you later find that VAT claimed under the grant becomes recoverable, you must repay this amount to us.
We would love to maximise our impact for every project we support. For this reason we encourage all applications to provide match funding and it’s a requirement for applications of £10,001 or over.
Apply for funding
If your organisation and project are eligible, you can apply for funding from the Community Fund.
