What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is an income tax relief designed to benefit charities like the South Essex Wildlife Hospital. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25% because South Essex Wildlife Hospital can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift at no extra cost to you. This means that for every £10 you donate, the UK Government gives us an additional £2.50.

This form should only be filled in if you are a UK taxpayer.

We cannot claim for non taxpayers or foreign donations.

Today: Past 4 years: In the Future:

I am a UK taxpayer 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.

I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.. Please notify the charity if you:

  • Want to cancel this declaration
  • Change your name or home address
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

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 and Customs to adjust your tax code.
