Do you want to make your donation to Beechwood worth more? Then why not Gift Aid it! It is simple to do; it costs you nothing but gives us around £10,000 per year extra on donations made.
What is Gift Aid?
When you make a donation to a charity, that charity is able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation. This mechanism is called Gift Aid and amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give.
How does it work?
If you give £10 to a charity and you are a basic rate taxpayer (20%), you will have paid £2.50 in tax on the gross donation (i.e.to take home £10, you will have earned £12.50 before tax). Charities are able to reclaim this £2.50 back from HMRC. You don’t need to do anything other than sign a Gift Aid Form; we then claim the money from the Government.
Who is eligible?
Gift Aid can be applied to any UK, EU, Norwegian or Icelandic charity that is registered with HMRC.
You must be a UK taxpayer for your donation to qualify for Gift Aid. This can either be Income or Capital Gains Tax, but you must have paid enough in the tax year that you make the donation to at least cover the amount that the charity will claim (25p per £1).
What do I have to do?
You will need to inform the charity that you are a UK taxpayer and you would like them to reclaim the tax on your donation. You will do this by making a Gift Aid Declaration, most commonly done by filling in a simple form, provided to you by the charity.
