Gift Aid

If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can increase the value of your charity donations by choosing to donate through ‘Gift Aid’.

Gift Aid allows Restart Orkney to claim from the Inland Revenue the basic rate of income tax on a donation made by tax paying donors.

How it works

When you donate, the charity will ask you whether you want donate through Gift Aid – if you do, they’ll be able to claim back the tax you originally paid at the basic rate of 20%.

For Example

If you donate a sofa which raises £20, we can claim £5 from HMRC (the Inland Revenue), making your donation go even further
At no cost to you.
