ONE-OFF DONATION FORM
ABOUT GIFT AID
If you are a UK taxpayer the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you. A £50 donation will equal a £62.50 total with no extra cost to you.
Your donations are eligible for the scheme if you pay enough income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax that all charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs you donate to will reclaim for each tax year (6 April to 5 April). Council tax and VAT do not count.
Gift Aid explained
Find out everything you need to know about Gift Aid.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift to a charity - at no extra cost to you. If you pay tax in the UK, we can reclaim the basic rate tax (25%) on your gift. So, if you donate £100, it is worth £125 to us.
Do I qualify for Gift Aid?
In order for The Anglo Peruvian Society to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donations, you must have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) at least equal to the tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs that you donate to will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.
How do I sign up to Gift Aid?
The process is simple - all you have to do is make a Gift Aid declaration. If you are donating online, just tick the Gift Aid box on the donation form.
What does the Gift Aid declaration commit me to?
Nothing! It just ensures that if you choose to donate, we can claim an extra 25% back from the government.
What is a Gift Aid declaration?
A Gift Aid declaration is a statement by an individual taxpayer that they want a charity to receive the tax paid on their donation back from the government.
How long does the declaration last for?
The declaration wording normally covers present, future and past donations. We can back-claim four years and we will continue to claim until you tell us otherwise, so long as you are eligible.
What do I do if I my tax status changes or I want to cancel my declaration?
Just let us know if you stop paying tax or wish to cancel your declaration.
