Office closures - Our teams have worked exceptionally hard during the pandemic, so we are giving everyone an extra day’s holiday as a thank you. On Friday 23 July our offices will be closed and we will be offline.

Cultural relief rate rises in the Autumn 2021 Budget

The tax credit rates on the cultural reliefs – Theatre Tax Relief, Orchestra Tax Relief and the Museums and Galleries Exhibition Tax Relief – have been increased with immediate effect from 20/25% to 45/50%, providing a welcome boost to cashflows for these entities in difficult times.

The enhanced tax credit will remain available until April 2023, at which point they will be reduced to 30/35% for one tax year, reverting to their original level in April 2024.

The expiration of the Museums and Galleries Exhibition Tax Relief is delayed from April 2022 to April 2024 as a result of these amendments.
