What is Gift Aid?
Donating through Gift Aid means YHA can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra. As soon as you give your permission by completing a Gift Aid declaration form we can claim tax back on your donation.
What donations are eligible?
YHA can claim Gift Aid on most donations, but some payments don’t qualify.
According to HMRC rules, certain donations are not eligible for Gift Aid. If your donation falls into any of the following categories, Gift Aid shouldn’t be claimed:
• Donations made by anyone that is not a UK taxpayer
• Donations made on behalf of someone else or a group of people
• Donations made in return for something. If you are making a donation in return for a ticket to attend an event
• Donations made on behalf of a company. However a company can claim tax relief on the donation when donating directly to the charity.
