Regulators, government and/or other relevant bodies periodically open consultations on matters related to the Armed Forces. Cobseo encourages the Membership to submit responses to these consultations. Where appropriate, the Cobseo office may look to collate a military charity sector response and these details will be found below.
Below lists the consultations currently open and those that the Cobseo Governance Support team have collated previously on behalf of the Membership.
No consultations are currently open.
Charity Tax Commission tax arrangements
The independent Charity Tax Commission undertook the first extensive review in over 20 years of the tax arrangements for charities. Cobseo collated the responses to a call for comments from Member organisations on the tax burdens they encountered and suggestions for improvements. These responses were forwarded on behalf of members in a formal submission of evidence to the Commission on 6th July 2018.

Having launched at the Cobseo AGM earlier this year, a consultation on the Aide Memoire and supporting Information Note on Governance Practices opened for all Members to feedback on their usefulness and clarity.
