Gift Aid explained Gift Aid is a government scheme which allows charities to claim back the tax you have already paid on your donations. If you are a basic rate (currently 20%) tax payer, for every £1.25 you earn, you take home £1.00 and 25p goes to H M Revenue & Customs (HMRC). If you give that £1.00 to charity under the Gift Aid scheme the charity can claim back the 25p tax from HMRC. This brings the value of your donation to £1.25, at no extra cost to you!
The scheme doesn’t just apply to basic rate tax payers. Anyone who pays UK Income or Capital Gains Tax can take part, so any personal tax you pay on your salary, pension or savings is eligible. The same applies to sole traders and partnerships too. However, as companies can make charitable donations from their gross income BEFORE tax, charities are unable to claim Gift Aid on company donations.
If you are a 40% tax payer or higher, you can also claim tax relief on your charitable donations. This means that for every £1.00 you give, we still receive £1.25 but it will cost you just 75p. All you have to do is include our receipt for your donation in your next tax return.
Charities can’t claim Gift Aid on the following:-raffle tickets, or other prize entries, entrance fees to an event, donations made via the Charities Aid Foundation (the tax has already been claimed on these)
If you’re not sure if you pay enough tax to sign up to the Gift Aid scheme or would like further guidance/information, please contact your local tax office, or call the HMRC helpline on 0845 302 0203. www.hmrc.gov.uk/individuals/giving/gift-aid.htm
