As a registered Scottish charity (SC010100), Age Scotland can collect 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate, if you’re a UK taxpayer. You simply need to sign the Gift Aid declaration on your donation form, available here, and we’ll do the rest.
High Rate Taxpayers
Tax efficient giving means that the value of your gift to Age Scotland could rise significantly if you’re willing to donate the tax rebate you can claim on your Self-Assessment tax return as well as the gift itself. For instance, on a gift of £500, Age Scotland will receive £625 while you can reclaim £125 from HMRC, reducing your net contribution to £375 but potentially increasing the sum Age Scotland receives to £750.
Tax relief can be claimed on corporate donations. This link to the GOV.UK website explains how to claim.
