Tax Efficient Giving
There are a number of ways that you can increase the impact of your donation to the Bottletop Foundation through tax-effective giving:
Gift Aid allows charities to claim the basic rate of tax on donations received from UK taxpayers. This is currently 20%.
If you pay tax at the higher rate of Income Tax, currently 40%, you can also claim tax relief for yourself at 20% of the gross donation, or 25p for every £1 they give through Gift Aid.
You donate the Bottletop Foundation: £100.00
We claim from HMRC basic rate Income Tax on gross gift (£125 @ 20%): £25.00
Transitional Relief: £3.20
Total the Bottletop Foundation receives: £128.20
Declarations can be given in writing, either by post, text message, fax, email or online.
For further Information on Gift Aid declarations, or to gift aid your donation to the Bottletop Foundation, please contact Oliver@bottletop.org
Payroll Giving is a scheme that enables employees to give to charity straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted), and to receive immediate tax relief of up to £5 for every £10 donated.
