Gift Aid is a government policy that enables tax-effective giving by individuals to charities in the UK. It is a valuable source of income for your parish, which can increase donations received under the scheme by 25%.
The system is easy to set up and operate.
The National Church has produced a number of fact sheets to assist you with maximising Gift Aid in your parish.
These and more information to help and support your parish can be found on the Parish Resources website.
Further guidance is on the HMRC website.
