In this issue, we share the fantastic news that Anne Hallowell has been promoted to become the firm’s first dedicated charity and not-for-profit partner. There’s also news from our Strategic Talent team who have supported Azure Charitable Enterprises to source a new CEO.

We have an update on Charity SORP as well as the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT and Tax Partner David Ward discusses potential changes to charity taxation in the UK.

In addition, the bulletin also contains an interview with our Corporate Finance Manager Maxine Johnston, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2016. We talk to her about her MS journey, career and optimism for the future as UNW embark on a new Corporate Partnership with MS Research and Relief Fund (MSRRF).

If you have any questions about the topics covered in this Bulletin, please feel free to contact a member of our Charity and Not-for-Profit team. Full contact details are included on the back page.
