What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a government scheme which allows charities to reclaim the basic rate of tax on donations made by taxpayers thereby increasing the size of the donation.
Why should I Gift Aid my donation?
By completing a Gift Aid declaration, Hope House Children’s Hospices can increase your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you.
Who can Gift Aid?
To qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay at least the same amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in one tax year (6 April one year to 5 April in the next year) as we claim on your gift (currently 25p for each pound you donate).
I want to Gift Aid my donation and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past four years to Hope House Children’s Hospices. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. Please notify the charity if you: 1. Want to cancel this declaration; 2. Change your name or home address; 3. No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
