What is Gift Aid
Gift aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities. STOP International can claim an extra 25 pence for every £1 you donate back from the Inland Revenue.
The Government treats donations to STOP International 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.
How do I know if I’m a UK tax payer?
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 STOP can reclaim the tax on your donations. Please note: Inheritance tax does not count as UK income tax.
