Gift Aid

This section has details about how to set up to claim gift aid and some of the rules about what you can and cannot claim.

Registering:

There are three steps to before you can claim for Gift Aid:

  1. Register with HMRC for Gift Aid. A presentation which shows how to do this can be found here
  2. Ask all Parents to sign the Gift Aid form. A Sample form that you can download can be found here and a short presentation can be found here
  3. Register for an online account with HMRC. Once again, there is a presentation which shows you how to do this and it can be found here

It takes 3 to 4 weeks to do all the registration, but at the end of it, you can claim 25% of your subs and other donations - and go back 4 years. So it is well worth doing.

Claiming:

Once you are registed, you can claim up to 25% of your subs plus other things (like bag packing). You do this online with the account you registered in step 2 above. There are, however some rules which you need to follow. This short flow chart shows you what you can and cannot claim for.

There is also a web page issued by HMRC here which details some of this too.
