How UK charities can claim Gift Aid on donations with Ticket Tailor

How UK charities can claim Gift Aid on donations with Ticket Tailor

If you’ve ever sponsored someone in a charity sport event, it’s likely you’ve been asked whether or not you want to add Gift Aid to your donation. But what exactly is Gift Aid? UK-based charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated from HMRC through Gift Aid, which can quickly add up and make a huge difference.

While it’s an easy way to boost voluntary donations, collecting a Gift Aid declaration is not always as straightforward to set-up as it should be. So, we’ve added a new feature to make it as simple as possible for charities selling event tickets online with Ticket Tailor to claim and report on Gift Aid.
