Gift Aid

  • It couldn't be easier for donors to donate to charity.
  • The charity recovers basic rate tax (25p for each £1 received).
  • There is no minimum donation.
  • It can be used for regular giving not just one off donations.
  • The donor's written declaration can cover donations in the past and the future.
  • The declaration can be verbal and charities do not need to write in confirmation, however they do need to retain relevent internal records and will still need to retain the copies of the written confirmation held from before 1 November 2005.
  • There are also provisions which enable an individual to give land or building to a charity and obtain tax relief.
  • Gift Aid can also be claimed on goods that have been donated to a charity. Under the Retail Gift Aid rules the charity effectively sells the goods as agent and then the sale proceeds are donated to the charity.
  • New rules from April 2013 make this an easier process by reducing the administrative burden. HMRC charities online is now available so that charities are able to aggregate individual gift aid donations of £20 or less up to a maximum of £1000 per entry.

Testimonials

  • "After many years working in an independent opticians, Victoria and I thought it was time to venture out and consider opening our own opticians practice.
    We had never previously run our own business, and wanted to look for some professional and impartial advice. After speaking with other opticians, we were advised to speak with Desirie from Morris & Co.
    What can we say! From our first tentative telephone call to Desirie, to find out how we might set up a new business, all the way through to purchasing our practice, and finally opening the doors to customers, Desirie has been an inspiration. She gave us excellent advice on how to negotiate at each stage of our purchase, helped us to draw up a realistic business strategy and always kept our feet firmly on the floor.
    Since we began trading in December 2012, we have had frequent contact with Desirie and the team. We would not hesitate to recommend Desirie and Morris & Co as your future accountants, they have given us a great start to our new business, and are always keen to make sure we stay on the right pathway to success”

  • "When appointing an accountant it was very important to me to select someone who was not only knowledgeable but friendly and approachable. I have always received proactive, professional advice and I know that the specialist advice I require to run my business is only ever a phone call away. A VAT full cost and apportionment calculation was recently undertaken for my company. As a result of this, my percentages have reduced, thereby saving me additional money."
