My Parish has adopted a project and as such will be able to claim the VAT back. They are starting to fundraise and plan to set up a charity to process donations and claim gift aid . Some time ago I read that you cant claim both on the same project (Bob Geldolf Live aid?).
I have a contact in HMRC but they are most evasive about giving advice which seems stupid but that 's the way they operate. Has anyone any experience of this situation and can direct me to any specific advice.
