Fiscal concessions: What Can Your Government Do For Your National Society?

“ Fiscal Concessions” has been produced as a guide for National Societies that want to capitalize on every financial advantage available to them through their governments. Some advantages may be “hiding”, waiting to be discovered. Other advantages could even be created. In other words, the existing laws of your country may already permit your National Society to raise money at low cost or even no cost. Or, you may be able to influence new legislation that could improve your National Society’s financial situation. It is hoped that the principles and examples contained in this paper may encourage and enable National Societies to increase the financial support that their governments, directly or indirectly, can provide.“ Fiscal Concessions” has been produced as a guide for National Societies that want to capitalize on every financial advantage available to them through their governments.
