By introducing GIFT AID, the Government has made it easier to give to churches and charities. At no cost to you, tax-effective giving adds 25% to the value of every gift you make to All Saints’ Church. There is no minimum amount, and one declaration to the church can cover all your giving for an indefinite period of time. GIFT AID has become the primary means of tax-effective giving.

By completing a simple form—called a GIFT AID DECLARATION (below), you can make your giving to All Saints’ Church tax-effective. Provided you pay Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in the UK, the church can reclaim tax on all the money you give during a year whether it’s a single one-off or recurring donation.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Why GIFT AID?

The Government wants to encourage giving to churches and charities, so they have made it possible for us to recover the tax that donors have paid on their donations. It does not matter how large or small your gift, or how frequently or occasionally you have given.

How does it work?

All you have to do is complete and sign the attached GIFT AID DECLARATION, then hand it or post it to the Treasurer or Harold Dowler at church. It is a good idea to keep your own record of how much you give in any one tax-year as HMRC may ask you for this information.

What about confidentiality?

Only you, HM Revenue & Customs, and our GIFT AID SECRETARY, Harold Dowler, will be able to link your name with the amount of money that you give. No one else will know how much money you have given.

OUR PROMISE TO YOU

Please be assured that signing this form involves you in no cost to yourself. Places you under no obligation to give regularly or for any given period of time. Commits All Saints’ to taking care of the administration so that you are not inconvenienced in any way.

Please Note:

In order for us to reclaim tax on your donations in a particular tax year, you must pay in that year an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax that at least equals the amount we would seek to reclaim on your donations (at present 25p for every £1 you give). Please remember to notify us if you no longer pay enough tax. Please also notify us if you change your name or address.

NOTES

Please notify us if you:-

  • Want to cancel this declaration
  • Change your name or home address
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains. Gift Aid is linked to basic rate tax, currently 20%, which allows charities to reclaim 25p for every £1 donated.
  • If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
