How does Gift Aid on donated items work?
Gift Aid is a scheme controlled and regulated by HMRC (Inland Revenue) which enables charities to claim back from the donor's tax contributions, 25p for every £1 donated at no additional cost to the donor.
For example, if you donate a bag of items to us which are sold for £25, these would actually be worth £31 to us - at no extra cost to you - if you sign up to Gift Aid.
We can use this extra income to make donations worth more to everyone that uses our services.
The donor is required to be a UK taxpayer and must have paid a sufficient amount of tax to cover any Gift Aid claimed on their donations in each tax year (6th April to 5th April).
- You will be given a unique Donor ID number and all your items will be labelled with this number to enable us to record the sales value.
- You will be notified by email or letter of the total sales value of your items before any Gift Aid is claimed. (This gives you the opportunity to cancel your registration if your circumstances have changed, i.e. you are no longer a taxpayer or have paid insufficient tax to cover your Gift Aid claims.)
- High-value items may be sold through auction or via the Sue Ryder eBay site.
