The University is a charity, a status which provides shelter from certain direct taxes when considering its primary purpose activities, but this does NOT exempt the University from paying tax altogether
These pages are designed to support staff at all levels who have any responsibility for financial activity in their departments. They are intended to provide advice and guidance on how to ensure we meet all statutory and legal requirements around taxation while minimising the tax burden of the University.
The Tax Team is responsible for ensuring compliance with tax law and effectively managing risks and opportunities in this area for the University. It acts as the key liaison with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
