Gift aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities.

HM Revenue & Customs treat donations as if the donor had already deducted basic rate tax from them. Therefore, the National Tremor Foundation can reclaim this tax to increase the value of a donation.

Gift aid rules

Donors must:

  • pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax themselves to cover the amount of tax the charity will reclaim
  • give the charity a gift aid declaration, which should include
    - their name
    - their home address
    - the charity’s name
    - details of the donation – saying that it is a gift aid donation
    - confirmation that they have paid UK tax – to cover the tax the charity will reclaim.

A declaration can be made to cover:

·         individual donations

·         a series of donations

·         donations made during a specified period

·         future donations.

They can also be backdated for up to 6 years prior to the date of the declaration provided the donation was made after 6 April 2000.

Thank You.
