[Resolved] Gift Aid in UK

  • Hi! GBP support is in with version 2.8.1

    Can you tell me more about what you would need seamless donations to do for gift aid? A checkbox for UK donors to check that says they are a tax payer? Something else?




    thanks for reply – for gift aid we would need a check box to say that they are a UK tax payer and are happy for the charity to claim gift aid – copied this off the government website http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/charities/gift_aid/declarations.htm

    Using your own Gift Aid declaration form – information needed by HMRC
    As a minimum, all Gift Aid declarations your charity or CASC receives must contain the following information:
    the name of your charity or CASC
    the donor’s name – as a minimum the initial of the first name and the last name in full
    the donor’s home address – as a minimum the house number/name and postcode
    whether the declaration covers only the present donation or past and/or future donations as well
    a statement or verbal confirmation by the donor that Gift Aid is to apply – on a written form or on a website, a tick box is sufficient
    confirmation the donor has been given an explanation that they must pay at least as much UK income tax and/or capital gains tax (for the year of the donation) as the amount that will be claimed by your charity or CASC and any other charities and CASCs they donate to.
    HMRC has produced a checklist which shows all the information you need to include in your charity’s Gift Aid declarations on one page.

    Really appreciate your help on this as I have been looking for sometime for the solution to this on the website


    Thanks! I can add this in an upcoming release – probably within a week or so.


    Looking forward to it – will help many charities in UK

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    This will be so helpful for my charity and I can’t wait for you to update. This will be another weight off my non-techy mind.

    This will be in the next release – probably the first week of February at this point (lots on my plate).

    Thanks for the info, allendav, I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

    Thanks for keeping us informed and like Jeanette, I know it is worth the wait

    Done! You can find the feature (for UK donors) in version 3.0.0 (along with an important bug fix.)



    That’s brilliant news! Thank you so much. I shall apply myself first thing on Monday morning and leave feedback when I’ve got to grips will it. Wish I could buy you a pint!


    Thanks for doing this Allen. I have tried it out and all working, just having a problem with the thank you e-mails but that is probably my site

    Really appreciate you adding the Gift Aid question


    here it is in action – the gift aid question shows when you donate.

    Thank you! So glad to help. Let me know if you can’t sort out the thank you emails and I can take a look.




    I have downloaded Seamless Donations and am really happy with it however I can’t seem to find the gift aid selection box. Are you able to tell me how I can show the gift aid option on the form?
