The Arts Council’s new Museums and Galleries Exhibition Tax Relief (MGETR) Support Service is designed to enable more organisations to benefit from this relief. The support service pack will help address some of the common questions and misconceptions associated with the tax relief, as well as providing a straightforward, step-by-step guide to preparing and making a claim.
The Museums and Galleries Exhibition Tax Relief is an important source of additional funds that is applicable to a large number of arts and cultural organisations. Up to 40p in each £ could be claimed as cash-based support to invest in your organisation’s ambitions.
In addition to the new guide, companies based in England can also benefit from a new helpdesk service, which will provide them with direct access to expert guidance from RSM, who are delivering this service for the Arts Council.
To access the helpdesk service, you’ll need to register for the guide. You will then receive instructions on how to book a call. The MGETR Support Service will run for an intial six months, but may be extended following a review.
The MGETR Support Service is completely free and aimed at supporting charitable arts and culture organisations that are seeking to submit a Museums and Galleries Exhibitions Tax Relief claim.
