Volunteering, benefits and tax
There is often confusion about whether volunteering affects an individual's State Benefit entitlement. You are required to inform Job Centre Plus about volunteering. As long as it does not exceed the actual expense incurred, claiming expenses should have no bearing on your payment. Volunteers are entitled to re-imbursement for their expenses. It is reimbursement rather than extra income, so would not usually need to be declared on a tax form. For further information see Volunteering and State Benefits at www.volunteering.org.uk
