'Acceptance in lieu and Cultural gifts Scheme' Annual report from the Arts Council England


In the past year, the Cultural Gifts Scheme and Acceptance in Lieu have saved some wonderful works of art for the nation, bringing them into public
ownership so that they can be enjoyed by the British public and by the millions of visitors who come to revel in this nation’s rich heritage.

This report brings together 36 cases, including 13 donations under the Cultural Gifts Scheme – a fantastic take-up of a scheme that has only been in operation since 2013. Under the scheme, 70 to 80 per cent of an object’s value is a charitable gift to the nation, so this increase in philanthropic giving from private collectors and companies is excellent news.

Each and every gift and offer reported here has required careful consideration and negotiation. The Arts Council could not do this without the unstinting work of the Acceptance in Lieu Panel.
