The Gift Aid scheme allows charitable and non-profit organisations to reclaim the basic rate income tax from Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs.
As a rough guide this means that for every pound donated to charities, including The Bar Convent Trust, an extra 25 pence can be claimed from HMRC. This is a government contribution, and incurs no cost or further action by the donor. All administration of the scheme is carried out by the charity to which the donation is made.
Am I eligible to Gift Aid my donation?
Firstly, you must be a resident in the UK. (You also qualify if you are Crown servants or members of the UK armed forces serving overseas.)
You must pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax the charity will reclaim.
You must also provide The Bar Convent with a gift aid declaration.
This happens automatically when you donate to The Bar Convent online.
How can I Gift Aid my donation to The Bar Convent Trust?
When you donate to The Bar Convent using this website, we receive your details from the Gift Aid Declaration. You need do nothing else, we claim the tax back from the HMRC.
