Glossary of Terms
Sponsorship in kind is the provision of discounted or free goods or services. If such items are made available at less than cost, the difference should be treated as a sponsorship payment (provided the business receives appropriate benefits) and the tax implications are as for sponsorship.
Donation is money (or goods or services) from an individual or business for which no commercial return is sought. There is no VAT charged.
Patronage, like donation, is money from an individual or business for which no commercial return is sought. It is tax-free and can be done by Gift Aid or Deed of Covenant.
Corporate membership is a scheme whereby a business pays an annual sum to an arts organisation in return for various services over the course of a year. It is not considered sponsorship and may be regarded by the Inland Revenue as entertainment and therefore disallowed for tax purposes.
Development is a general term for the act of attracting revenue through fundraising and sponsorship.
Support is a generic term that can be used to cover any positive relationship between a business and an arts organisation
Subsidy is money from bodies with a duty to support the arts financially. For example, the Regional Arts Councils, the Museums and Galleries Commission, the British Film Institute.
Earned income is money an arts organisation earns through ticket sales, programmes, sales of work etc. It includes retailing, merchandising, proceeds from room hire and corporate memberships.
