Your donation could make an even bigger impact at no extra cost to you.
Gifts from UK taxpayers qualify for Gift Aid. This means that for every £1 you give to a cause, we can claim an extra 25p. For example, a gift of £40.00 means we can reclaim £10.00 making your gift worth £50.00.
It won’t cost you a single penny more, but will enhance your donation towards your charity.
Do I qualify for Gift Aid?
To qualify, you must be a UK taxpayer who has paid income or capital gains tax equal to the tax that will be claimed on your donation.
For example, if you donate £200 in the current tax year, you need to have paid £50 in tax to match the amount that Able can claim for you in Gift Aid.
You are a UK taxpayer if:
- Tax is taken from your wages at source (ie PAYE).
- You fill out a self-assessment form.
- You have any taxable savings (in a building society, for instance), or a pension plan, or investment income.
- You have paid capital gains tax, or expect to pay it in the near future.
How do I sign up to Gift Aid?
It’s very easy – all you have to do is make a Gift Aid declaration. A Gift Aid declaration is a statement by an individual taxpayer that they want a charity to receive the tax paid on their donation back from the government.
If you accept these terms, you have given your Gift Aid declaration.
