Tax-Efficient Giving

Make your gift worth more...

Gift Aid adds 25% to your donation. As a higher-rate taxpayer you can reclaim the difference between the 20% to the 45% tax rate, thus reducing the actual cost to you of your donation as shown here.

As a UK tax payer and a higher-rate taxpayer, your donation might be worth more than you think and cost you less than you think. Here’s how:

£1,000

£6,000

£1,250

£7,500

£687.50

£4,125

£312.50

£1,875

DECLARATION
I understand that I must have paid Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax that is equal to the tax that the charity reclaims during a tax year, currently 25p for each £1 given.
I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that if I pay less income tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give or have given in the last four tax years.
