Gift Aid is the system by which any donation or subscription that is made to a Charity by a UK tax payer, is treated as the net amount.
Gift Aid is reclaimed by Plant Heritage from the tax you pay for the current tax year. The charity reclaims the tax at the basic rate (currently 20%) thereby obtaining a refund of 25 pence for every £1 given by you. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK tax payer.
Gift Aid declaration: I am a UK tax payer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
Donations must be paid out of income on which tax and/or Capital Gains tax has been paid.
Donors should notify us if they are no longer UK tax payers so that the declaration can be cancelled.
Donors may also cancel their declaration at any time.
If you are unsure whether your donations qualify for Gift Aid relief, or if you have any queries regarding Gift Aid please telephone the National Office on 01483 447540.
