If you are a UK tax payer, your donation to the Countess of Brecknock Hospice can be worth even more by signing a Gift Aid Declaration. The Hospice can then claim the tax back from HMRC on your donation at no extra cost to you.
What is Gift Aid?
It is tax relief for single or multiple cash gifts (cheque, bank transfer and credit card) made to UK charities by UK residents. There is no upper limit to the amount you can give in each tax year.
Gift Aid tax relief is intended for outright gifts, not for payments to buy goods and services for you or your family.
Also payments that have already received tax relief cannot be Gift Aid payments e.g. under a Payroll Giving scheme or by CAF charity voucher.
How does it work?
You make a donation net of basic rate tax and give the Trust a declaration so that we can claim tax back from the Inland Revenue.
You must have at least as much income charged as the amount of your gross donation. If the donation exceeds this amount the Inland Revenue may ask you to make up the difference.
What do I need to do?
Complete the gift aid declaration portion of the donation form when you give your donation or complete a Gift Aid Declaration and we’ll do the rest.
Cancellation of your Gift Aid Declaration
You are entitled to cancel your declaration at any time, please notify us in writing at Countess of Brecknock Hospice, War Memorial Hospital, Charlton Road, Andover SP10 3LB.
