About Gift Aid
UK charities are entitled to 28% tax reclaim from the Inland Revenue on every 1 donated by UK taxpayers. Unfortunately, charities often miss out on this extra income because it is too expensive to process the paperwork on small donations.CAFonline has solved the problem by automating the process of Gift Aid reclaim so that every 1 you give is worth more, and costs less to administer, for your favourite charity.
What do I have to do?
When you donate, you will be asked to confirm whether or not you are a UK taxpayer. Please note that tax can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year.
Benefits to higher-rate taxpayers
If you pay tax at the higher rate, you can reclaim tax relief on your gross donation at 18% (eg the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% and the basic rate at 22%).
For example, if you give 100 we can reclaim an extra 28.21 for the charity and you can reclaim another 23.08. As a result, a 100 gift worth 128.21 to your favourite charity only costs you 76.92.
What if I am not a UK taxpayer?
The Gift Aid scheme is unique to the UK. If you are not a UK taxpayer, you can still make a donation through CAFonline, but your donation will not attract the 28% tax ‘bonus’.
