What is Gift Aid? Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities and CASCs to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor and is currently worth 25p for every pound donated by UK taxpayers. How do you calculate Gift Aid? The calculation is: (donation) x 20 (basic rate of tax) 80 (100 – basic rate of tax) How do charities claim Gift Aid? UK, EU, Norwegian and Icelandic charities may be eligible for Gift Aid. Charities wishing to claim Gift Aid need to register with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for tax purposes. HMRC will send you the Charity Application Form to nominate a member of staff to make the claims and the claim forms. For further information read this page on registering and claiming Gift Aid.
