In putting this bulletin together, I decided to look back at the last one and can’t believe it is over 6 months since it was released – I really have no idea where this year has gone.

As we approach the end of 2021 and start to look forward with cautious optimism to 2022 on the basis that next year has got to be an improvement for most people, we talk to Toby Bridges about the need to fund arts provision to ensure that we get the broad skill base needed for businesses of the future.

In a news round up, we look at some of the employment tax issues you may face as you and your staff return to the office but perhaps adopt hybrid working arrangements and update you on the extension to “Making Tax Digital” to make sure you are as prepared as you can be. We also look at recent updates to Cultural Tax Reliefs.

Since the last edition we have held a couple of virtual events and have even managed one in person – it was lovely to see everyone that came along – so we recap on one of our briefings and start to think about the programme for 2022, which we hope to kick off with some practical advice on Trustee recruitment.

Looking forward into the new year, a key topic in corporate reporting is sustainability so I’ve pulled together some themes for you to think about in the context of your charity and reporting.

As we are now in December, I feel perfectly justified in wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas and a prosperous 2022.
