Gift Aid -What you need to know

Gift Aid is important to Charities like The Furniture Project Nottinghamshire because it means we can claim an extra 25% from HM Revenue & Customs on any funds raised by your donation at no cost to you. When we come to collect the furniture you have donated our drivers will ask you if you would like to Gift Aid your donation. If they don’t, please do ask them about it. You will need to sign a Gift Aid declaration form that confirms you are a UK taxpayer. This extra money means we can run more vans, collect more furniture, and therefore help more people.

We realise Gift Aid can seem complicated so we have put together some FAQ’s to hopefully answer any questions you may have. If you sign our Gift Aid declaration form, we will always write to you when the items have sold to let you know what they made and to double check you are still eligible to Gift Aid. If your circumstances have changed between you signing the form and us selling your donation this gives you the opportunity to let us know and we can remove your Gift Aid declaration.

What is Gift Aid?

• Gift Aid is a scheme run by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) that means charities like ours can claim the tax on your donations at no extra cost to you.

• This means that we can claim an extra 25% on any funds raised by your donation. So, if your donation sells for £10, we will actually receive £12.50.

Who can Gift Aid?

• You must be a current UK taxpayer, but this is not limited to tax on earnings.

• You also qualify if you pay tax on a pension, savings, property sales or rental income (Council Tax and VAT do not qualify as income tax).

• You need to have paid as much in tax as we will reclaim on your donations which is currently 25p for each £1 you give. So, if your donated goods make £10 we can reclaim an additional £2.50 from HMRC. The tax year runs from 6th April -5th April the following year.

• We will never share your details with third parties.

What if I am a pensioner?

• You may still be paying tax on a private pension or a savings account. If so, you are still eligible if you have paid enough tax during the year to cover your donations (i.e. 25% of the value of your gifts).

What if I have agreed to Gift Aid to another charity?

• You can support as many charities as you like through Gift Aid. You just need to make sure that you are paying enough tax during the year (6th April -5th April following year) to cover your total donations. You can withdraw your Gift Aid declaration at any time by contacting us.

If you are a UK taxpayer, then please help us to make your donation go further and tell the driver you wish to Gift Aid it when he comes to collect from you. Times are difficult for Charities now and this additional funding really does make a massive difference to us.
