About Gift Aid
If you are a UK tax payer please fill in the Gift Aid Declaration online at the bottom of this section and increase the value of your donation. To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount we claim in the tax year. A declaration can be made to cover individual donations, a series of donations, donations made during a specified period or all future donations. These can also be backdated for up to 6 years prior to the date of the declaration.
Remember to declare all your eligible Gift Aided donations on your tax return to raise your tax threshold by that amount. Gift Aid is tax relief on money donated to UK charities. Nelson Trust can reclaim this tax to increase the value of your donation. Gift aid rules: Donors must pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax the Nelson Trust will reclaim. Tax relief: If a donor pays the basic rate of tax, they cannot claim further tax relief on the payments’ higher rate of tax. They can claim higher rate relief on the payments by entering details of the donations in the Gift Aid box on their self-assessment tax return. Donors who receive a form P810 can declare their Gift Aid payments on it.
