Ek Niwas online donations are supported by Gift Aid
You can increase the value of your charity donations by choosing to donate through ‘Gift Aid’ if you’re a UK taxpayer.
Gift Aid increases the value of your donations and means charities can befit even more at no extra cost to you.
If you're a UK taxpayer, add Gift Aid whenever you make a donation and the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift - that's a whopping 25p for every £1 you give.
Higher rate tax payers can claim additional tax benefits for donations they make to charity, which you can keep or pass on to any charitable organisation. Simply indicate how much you have donated when completing your tax self-assessment form.
How it works
As a taxpayer, you’ll already have paid tax on any money you donate to charity. 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%.
You earn £125 and £25 tax is deducted from this at the basic rate of 20%. This leaves you with £100. You then donate the £100 to charity through Gift Aid.
The charity can claim an extra £25 (the tax you paid at basic rate) from the government to make your total donation £125.
