By signing a Gift Aid declaration you confirm that you understand that you must pay enough income tax and/or capital gains tax each tax year to cover the amount of Gift Aid that all charities and community amateur sports clubs claim on your donations in that tax year, and you are responsible for paying any difference.
Simon Jennings, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Gift of Life
"In England, there is a clear system of tax deductions for philanthropists. Provided the donor has paid sufficient income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year (or with a carry back election, in the previous year) Gift Aid relief allows the charity to reclaim from HMRC the basic rate tax on the amount given - equivalent to 25% of the net amount. The donor must have paid sufficient relevant taxes to cover the reclaim. VAT and council taxes don’t count”.
Remember Gift of Life in Your Will
With only 6 percent of the UK population remembering charities they used to support throughout life in their Wills, a massive £2 billion donation is still generated by legacy giving each year. That’s an income to consider seriously.
With massive inheritance taxes and changing perceptions of the UK residents towards charitable legacies, the day when legacy giving becomes a social norm can come as soon as tomorrow.
