Would you like to see your donations go even further and support more young wheelchair users with the life-changing equipment and skills they need? Then say “Yes!” to Gift Aid and see your gift increased by 25% at no extra cost to you or Whizz-Kidz.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple and effective way to support Whizz-Kidz. Under Gift Aid, HM Revenue & Customs allows charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers.
For every £1 that you donate, we can claim a further 25p at no additional cost to you. So, for example, if you donate £20 we actually receive £25.
Who is eligible for Gift Aid?
You must pay enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax in each tax year to cover the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations. Otherwise you will have a responsibility to pay any difference.
It’s important you read the declaration carefully before signing up.
More information can be found on the HMRC website - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/charities-detailed-guidance-notes/chapter-3-gift-aid
What if I’m a higher rate tax payer?
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue & Customs to adjust your tax code.
