What is the Gift Aid scheme?
The Gift Aid scheme allows Inside Justice to reclaim tax on charitable donations made to us by UK taxpayers from HM Revenue and Customs. This means that for every £1 you donate to us we will receive £1.25 in total, without costing you any extra.
This scheme helps us to fund our much needed miscarriage of justice support so please help us by donating with Gift Aid.
How does the Gift Aid scheme work?
You need to complete a standard Gift Aid declaration form please. We can then claim Gift Aid on all your donations within the last 4 years and all future donations.
This form confirms that you are a UK taxpayer and that your charitable donations made to Inside Justice do not exceed the amount of tax you have paid during the tax year.
If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year, it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
How do I sign up to Gift Aid?
- Online: Complete our online form
- By post: Download and complete our form and send it to: Inside Justice, One Business Village, Emily St, Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire HU9 1ND
Please help us to keep your records up to date
It is important that you let Inside Justice know if you stop paying tax or if you change your name/address so that we can update our records. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Am I eligible for Gift Aid?
You are eligible if:
- You are a UK taxpayer and the tax you pay that year is at least equal to your donations to charity
- If you are retired you can Gift Aid donations if you pay income tax or capital gains tax, provided you have paid enough tax during the year to cover the amount Inside Justice is reclaiming on your donations. If you live on your pension alone and do not pay tax, you won’t be eligible
- If you pay a higher rate of tax then you can claim the difference between the higher and basic rate on the total value of your donation
To receive the additional tax relief you must please:
