Small Donations Gift Aid Scheme
Extra money from HMRC over and above normal Gift Aid
Many charities are missing out on the Small Donations Gift Aid Scheme, which became effective from 6th April 2013.
The scheme has little to do with main stream Gift Aid - it is a separate system which allows cash collections to be treated as if they had been gift aided.
It allows cash collections of up to £5,000 to be treated as gift aided. In addition, it allows further amounts of £5,000 collected in separate church buildings, community halls and schools to be treated in the same way, provided the buildings are on separate sites, and subject to a number of conditions.
