Gift Aid and Tax Returns

If you pay tax in the UK, then Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift through Giveall. 

Gift Aid can be applied to any UK, EU, Norwegian or Icelandic charity that is registered with HMRC.

Making your donation using Gift Aid will enable Giveall or your charity to reclaim the basic rate tax on your gift.

The basic rate tax is 20 per cent, so this means that if you give £10.00 using Gift Aid, it's worth £12.50 to the charity. For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the charity or CASC will also get a separate government supplement of three pence on every pound you give.

If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40 and/or 50 per cent and the basic rate of tax 20 per cent on the total 'gross' value of your donation to the charity or CASC. For example, if you donate £100.00, the total value of your donation to the charity is £125.00 - so you can claim back:

  • £25 - if you pay tax at 40 per cent (£125 × 20%)
  • £37.50 - if you pay tax at 50 per cent (£125 × 20%) plus (£125 × 10%)

Tax Return

If you complete a self-assessment tax return form you can nominate Giveall or your favourite charity to receive any tax refund you are due. 

The government treats this donation as a Gift Aid donation, meaning that Giveall or your favourite charity will receive an additional 25p in the pound at no extra cost to you. 

All you have to do is tick the relevant box on your tax return form (field 9A.3 on the form) and quote our Inland Revenue number: XT22157. So next time you're doing your tax return, remember Giveall and your favourite charity!

Fundraising Regulator

At Giveall we believe that you should receive the best advice and guidance available, which can be found at the Fundraising Regulator's website here.

Please NOTE that details of the Regulator's advice and guidance is accessible and the particular Standard is set out as follows: -

The guidance MUST highlight the following considerations for fundraisers in how they publicise their appeal to prospective donors through their fundraising page on the site:
a) who is organising the appeal;
b) whether the money raised is for a specific purpose or for the recipient to use as they see fit. Where money is raised for a charity for a specific purpose, fundraisers MUST contact the charity to ensure they are aware and happy to receive the funds for this stated purpose. See also Code rule 5.2e on money given for a restricted purpose;
c) where applicable, what the target of the appeal will be - this might be a time target or a financial target;
d) whether the fundraiser is raising money on behalf of or for a registered charity and, where applicable, the name of the charity;
e) how donations can be made, including, where relevant, alternative ways of donating to the appeal and ways to maximise donations via Gift Aid;
f) what deductions will be made for expenses; and
g) what the fundraiser will do with the money if:
• they do not raise enough to meet their stated target;
• they raise an amount in excess of their stated target; or
• the original purpose for which they are seeking donations becomes invalid for any reason.
