Gift Aid and its Importance
The Scottish Community Foundation can increase the value of
your donation by 28.2% through the gift aid scheme and hence the amount
available to fund good causes. Higher rate taxpayers are also entitled to
tax relief (see below).
Who can make a Gift
From April 2000, the following
donations by individuals who are resident in the UK
donations by individuals who are Crown servants or members of the UK
armed forces serving overseas
donations by other non-resident
individuals, provided they have income or capital gains charged to UK tax
at least equal to the gross amount of the donation (i.e. the donation
before deduction of basic rate income tax).
HOW DOES GIFT AID WORK?
When an individual Tax payer makes a Gift Aid donation to
charity it is treated as paid after deduction of income tax at the basic
rate. For example, if he/she gives £100, it is treated as a gross
donation of £128.20 from which tax @22%, £28.20, has been
deducted. The donor makes a Gift Aid declaration to the charity.
charity can then claim the tax treated as deducted, from the Inland
Revenue (so gets £128.20 in total).
A higher rate Taxpayer is
entitled to further tax relief at the difference between higher and basic
rate tax on the gross donation, £128.20 @18% (£23.08). He/she
claims this by entering the donation on there Self Assessment tax
