We fail to claim £600 million in HMRC Gift Aid for charities annually, it's effectively core funding and you can claim up to 4 years retrospectively. We need that money more than ever, but there are different rules and it can be confusing. This Chaity Excellence resource gives you everything you need to make sure you're maximising yours. I'm Scottish, but not an accountant, so I can see the opportunity, but this resource is not professional advice.
Gift Aid, can be claimed by charities on donations from UK tax payers. You get an additional 25p from HMRC for every £1 donated. Think what you could do with that?
And there's more. In a CAF survey in July 2020, four in 10 of those who already donate money to charity, said Government incentives such as top-ups make them more likely to give.
It can be claimed by registered and unregistered (unincorpoarted associations) charituies and community amatuer sports clubs (CASCs).
If you're based outside of the UK, but have UK donors, it is possible to claim Gift Aid, without registering a UK charity and with HMRC. Find out more here.
