Country/Region Specific Information

Gift Aid
  • If you are a UK taxpayer, you can declare that all your donations should be treated as Gift Aid donations. Doing so maximises your gift, because we can reclaim 25p for every £1 you donate, at no further cost to you. Both single and regular gifts can be made tax-efficiently in the UK.
Higher and Additional Rate Tax
  • If you are a higher rate (40%) or additional rate (45%) taxpayer, you can claim the difference between basic rate tax and higher or additional rate tax back from HMRC.
