Charities VAT Compensation Scheme - A Reminder

Posted on 20 Jun 2022

The Charities VAT Compensation Scheme (VCS) aims to reduce the VAT burden on charities and to partially compensate them for VAT paid in the day to day running of their organisations.       

Since 1 January 2022, Revenue has been accepting claims under this scheme in respect of eligible VAT paid in 2021.  

This is a reminder to charities that 30 June 2022 is the closing date for submission of claims for VAT paid in 2021. It is not possible for claims to be submitted after that date.

Claimants should familiarise themselves with the qualifying criteria for the scheme before submitting a claim.  

Information about the scheme is available on the Revenue website.
