Gift aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities. ADRA-UK can claim an extra 25 pence for every £1 you donate back from the Inland Revenue.
The Government treats donations to ADRA-UK as if the donor had already deducted basic rate tax from them. The charity can then reclaim this tax to increase the value of a donation.
You are a UK tax payer if:
Tax is taken from your wages or salary before you receive your pay.
You have to fill in a self-assessment form each year
You have any taxable savings (in a Building Society, for instance), or a pension plan, or investment income.
If you have recently paid any capital gains tax, or expect to pay it in the near future. This could be on the sale of a property or some shares, for example.
If any of these apply to you, please complete and return your declaration so ADRA-UK can reclaim the tax on your donations. Please note: Inheritance tax does not count as UK income tax.
