If you are a UK taxpayer, you have the option to Gift Aid your donation. Gift Aid is a way for the charity to claim back the money that you have already paid to the government as tax. It doesn’t cost you a penny but means that your £108 is worth £135 to the charity. When signing up you can let us know you are happy for us to claim the Gift Aid on your donations.
You must pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April one year to 5 April the next) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that the charity will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year.
Gift Aid Declaration
Please treat all gifts of money that I have made to Diamond Way Buddhism UK in the past 4 years and all future gifts of money that I make from the date of this declaration as Gift Aid donations.
Please notify us at [email protected] 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 rate, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you.
