Note for Higher rate taxpayers
Did you know that if you are a Higher Rate Taxpayer, paying tax at 40%, you can reclaim £25 yourself for every £100 you donate through Gift Aid? SGSSH (and other charities) can only reclaim the basic rate of tax on Gift Aided donations, no matter whether the donor pays basic rate or higher rate tax. However, HMRC allows higher rate taxpayers to reclaim the difference between basic and higher rate tax themselves. For example, if you pay tax at 40% and you donate £100, SGSSH can claim £25 basic rate Gift Aid, and you can claim £25 for yourself too. This means your gift of £100 has only cost you £75, even though SGSSH has received £125.
You can claim your Gift Aid relief either through the Self-Assessment process, or you can simply write a letter to HMRC telling them how much you have donated through Gift Aid at the end of a Tax Year. If you give regularly, they can then amend your tax code so you get the relief ongoing. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
