Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Give Test to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Give Test we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Give Test to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Give Test will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Give Test receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Donation Total: $25.00 for five

Now let’s say you want to let your team know whether or not a donor opted-in to Gift Aid. This can be accomplished by marking whether or not this took place in the <a>Admin Email</a> that is sent to the listed email addresses when a donation is made.

The template tag that we will use is {meta_donation__give_gift_aid_accept_term_condition}

This will either pass in “on” when a donor selects the checkbox, or will pass nothing if the donor does doesn’t opt-in.

Here is a visual example:

Screenshot of setting up the email with the template tag

You can see how we set aside the space with “Gift Aid:” so we know where the value would display if it is present.

Here is the email that is generated when a donor select Gift Aid:

Screenshot of the email output

Here you can see the “on” is displaying in the “Gift Aid:” area that we defined when setting up the email. If the donor didn’t opt-in to Gift Aid this area would be blank.
