If you give to the church, Gift aid it!



Gift Aid is a Government Scheme that allows your parish to reclaim the tax you have paid on your donation. If you are a UK taxpayer, the Parish benefits from an extra 25p for every £1 that you give as a donation with Gift Aid! E.g. A £100 donation with the inclusion of gift aid would become £125 towards the parish and it wouldn't cost you an extra penny!

How Do I cancel my Gift Aid?

Myths about gift aid

No. Gift Aid is retrospective- it’s about tax you’ve already paid.

Gift aid does not affect the amount of State Pension you are entitled to.

Yes, you are! The parish can claim an extra 25p for every £1 that you give and in addition, you can reclaim the additional tax paid on your donations as part of your tax return.

If you pay income tax or capital gains tax then you CAN Gift Aid.

HMRC only check you’re a taxpayer and have paid sufficient tax to cover the rebate; there is no connection to past returns or triggering of an audit.

No. Gift Aid has nothing to do with immigration and legal status.
