The Gift Aid scheme allows charitable and non-profit organisations to reclaim the basic rate income tax from Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs. If you are a UK taxpayer you can gift aid it and add an additional 28% without any extra cost to yourself.
Am I eligible to Gift Aid my donation?
You must be a resident in the UK. (You also qualify if you are Crown servants or members of the UK armed forces serving overseas.)
You must pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax the charity will reclaim.
You must also provide Oily Cart with a gift aid declaration. This happens automatically when you donate to Oily Cart using PayPal.
