The Gift Aid scheme allows charitable and non-profit organisations to reclaim the basic rate income tax from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs. As a rough guide this means that for every pound donated to charities, including La Leche League GB, an extra 25 pence can be claimed.
Am I eligible to Gift Aid my donation?
- You must be a resident in the UK (you also qualify if you are Crown servants or members of the UK armed forces serving overseas.)
- You must pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax the charity will reclaim.
- You must also provide La Leche League GB with a gift aid declaration. This happens automatically when you donate to La Leche League GB using PayPal.
How can I Gift Aid my donation to La Leche League GB?
When you donate to La Leche League GB using this Web site your donation is handled by the payment port (PayPal or GoCardless). We receive your details and these details form the Gift Aid Declaration. You need do nothing else, La Leche League GB claim the tax back from HMRC.
