Gift Aid explained
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple way to increase the value of your gift to our rescue - at no extra cost to you. If you pay
tax in the UK, our rescue can reclaim the basic rate tax (25%) on your gift. So, if you donate £100, it is worth £125 to UK German
Shepherd Rescue Angels
Do I qualify for Gift Aid?
In order for the UK German Shepherd Rescue Angels 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. If you donate in an UK-GSR
Show or event, there is a simple form to sign. Or email us and we'll send you a form through the post or via email.
What does the
Gift Aid declaration commit me to?
Nothing! It just ensures that if you choose to donate to UK-GSR, 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?
matters for both you and the UK-GSR, 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?
To let us know if you stop paying tax or wish to cancel your declaration, please use our
gift aid enquiry form.
Can I claim Gift Aid on the funds I have raised?
To claim Gift Aid on your fundraising, we must have the first
name or initials, last name, full home address and postcode of each individual donor/sponsor. So please encourage them to tick the
Gift Aid box on your sponsorship form when they sponsor you. Without these details we legally can't claim Gift Aid - so be strict
with your supporters!
