Gift Aid FAQs
Is everyone eligible to Gift Aid their donation?
No. To be eligible for Gift Aid, you must be a UK taxpayer. In addition, the amount you pay in UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax must at least equal the amount Paisley Museum Reimagined Ltd claims back from your donation for the tax year.
What happens if I don’t pay enough tax to cover the value of the Gift Aid claim on my donation?
Donors who have not paid enough tax to cover their Gift Aid contribution are responsible for paying the difference. For example, if you donate £100 pounds and Gift Aid it, you must be sure that you will pay at least £25 in tax to cover the value of the claim by the beneficiary. Please check this before submitting your declaration.
Is there a cap on the value of a Gift Aided donation?
There is no upper limit on a Gift Aided donation, provided you have paid sufficient Capital Gains or Income Tax within the current tax year.
However, if you are a higher rate taxpayer, there may be a more tax efficient way to give. Please call us on 07970 661793 to speak to our tax specialist.
Does Gift Aiding my donation to Paisley Museum Reimagined Ltd mean I have to pay more?
No. The surplus 25% comes from HMRC. All you have to do is confirm you are happy for Paisley Museum Reimagined Ltd to claim back the tax you have already paid by completing our Gift Aid Declaration which is available to download from our website.
What kind of donations can I Gift Aid?
You can Gift Aid most donations to Paisley Museum Reimagined Ltd including: cash, credit or debit cards, direct debit, cheque, direct transfer or standing order. The declaration can be made over the phone, electronically via our website or in person.
What personal information do you require from me to Gift Aid my donation and who will it be shared with?
Paisley Museum Reimagined Ltd requires your full name and home address to Gift Aid your donation. This will be shared with HMRC only to make the necessary claims. This data will not be shared or used by any other organisations unless the relevant consent has been given.
