There is little difference between privately owned businesses and charities in terms of the work they do and the energy they consume. However, registered charities are eligible for certain discounts and tax deductions from HMRC because of their contribution to vulnerable people, society, and the environment.
Charities, non-profit organisations, community centres, and more, are all eligible for various deductions and discounts; the trouble is that not many of these organisations are unaware of the discounts and continue to pay annual fees in the same way as privately owned businesses.
Obtaining gas and electricity discounts from the government or your energy supplier is not only about getting what your not for profit organisation deserves; it's also about making significant savings that can be channelled into the business at a grassroots level.
