Create Cash for your Charity

BSA4Charity Buying Group boosts your cash 2 ways:
Cuts your running costs
BSA4Charity Buying Group provides your charity with a free cost audit. We can review any number of overhead cost categories (see below for the 18 cost areas we can review). The audit will identify significant opportunities for significant cost savings (i.e. up to 35%) thanks to our buying power and purchasing know-how. We then introduce our hand-picked vetted suppliers, and you then decide whether to trade with them directly. You can be rest assured that all suppliers we introduce have been selected because they provide great value for money consistently over time.
VAT Reclaim & VAT Savings
Many charities are unable to reclaim VAT on their marketing expenditure. This includes everything from printing leaflets to TV advertising. Our experts can generate cash refunds by identifying supplies where VAT was incorrectly charged either because the wrong rate of VAT was applied or because the charity was entitled to VAT relief.
How does the process work?
• PERFORM an audit if your marketing expenditure
• IDENTIFY supplies where VAT has been incorrectly charged
• REQUEST credit notes from your suppliers
• RECEIVE funds
We can go back up to 4 years so this process has the potential to generate a significant refund. There are no financial consequence to the suppliers either so this is not a confrontational process but one which brings mutual benefit since the charity will ultimately have more money to spend on marketing activities.
In addition to the retrospective refunds, our experts can advise on best practice for the procurement of marketing activity going forward. This ensures the charity can take maximum advantage of the available VAT reliefs for fundraising and advertising and so can enable the delivery of savings on an ongoing basis.
What activities are included?
• All forms of printed matter
