The Diocese of Manchester’s finances are mainly managed through the Manchester Diocesan Board of Finance (MDBF), a company limited by guarantee and a charity. Most of the MDBF income is provided by Parish Share, contributions from Archbishops' Council, diocesan fees and income from investments and property.
A presentation given by the Chair of the DBF to the October 2017 Synod on the 2018 Diocesan Board of Finance budget, is available to view. Download 2019 budget here which forecasts funding mission and ministry in the diocese.
Gift Aid enables parishes that are registered with HMRC to reclaim basic rate tax on donations they have received.
For information on Parish Share, preparing parish accounts and fees, please see the Parish Administration page.
