Overview

Donations by individuals to charity or to community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) are tax free. This is called tax relief.

The tax goes to you or the charity. How this works depends on whether you donate:

This also applies to sole traders and partnerships. There are different rules for limited companies.

If you want to donate to a sports club, check if it’s registered as a community amateur sports club (CASC). You can’t donate to a CASC through Payroll Giving.

Donating through Gift Aid means charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra.

Charities can claim Gift Aid on most donations, but some payments don’t qualify.

What you need to do

You need to make a Gift Aid declaration for the charity to claim. You usually do this by filling in a form – contact the charity if you haven’t got one.

You must give a declaration to each charity you want to donate to through Gift Aid.

You can include all donations from the last 4 years. Tell the charity about any tax years where you didn’t pay enough tax.

Paying enough tax to qualify for Gift Aid

Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April).

The tax could have been paid on income or capital gains.

You must tell the charities you support if you stop paying enough tax.
