Gift Aid donations only available to taxpayers
20 Jul, 2017
The Gift Aid scheme is available to all UK taxpayers, but in order to sign up to the Gift Aid scheme when you make a donation, you must be paying UK income tax.
There are clear advantages for charities if you make your donation in this way. The charity or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASC) concerned can take your donation and, provided all the qualifying conditions are met, can reclaim the basic rate tax, which
means that the value of your donation increases by 25p for every pound donated to charity.
