I want to Gift Aid my donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Leeds. I am a UK tax payer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid Claimed on all my donations in that relevant tax year, it is my reponsibility to pay any difference.

Date of Declartion

Please notify your Parish / Gift Aid Office:

  1. You wish to cancel this Declaration;
  2. You change your name or address;
  3. You no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donation on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code.

Gift Aid FAQ

What is a gift aid declaration (GAD)?

"Gift Aid" is the scheme used by charities and donors to reclaim tax on charitable donations

What does this mean to me?

If you have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at equal to the amount of tax that all the charities can reclaim against, the charity can claim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. I understand the charity will reclaim the tax back on my behalf - this is worked out as £1/80*20 = £0.25

How does it work?

You need to complete the GAD below for our parish for any donation(s) you have or will be making, including any diocesan second collections donated in a recordable format. The parish can them reclaim the tax back on your donation(s)/ If the donation(s) are not recorded they cannot be reclaimed against. The donation(s) can be given either by numbered envelope, cheque or bankers order. The GAD will cover all donations recorded by the paris.

How much does it cost me to gift aid my donations?

There is no extra cost to you. The tax is an extra bonus on your contributions - as shown below by completing a GAD you are increasing your donation automatically.

What if I stop paying tax?

Inform the parish priest, school organiser or Louise Ward at the Gift Aid Office to cancel your GAD. If the charity makes a claim on money recorded but you have not paid sufficient tax for, it will be your responsibility to repay the difference to HMRC

Who can complete a gift aid declaration?

Any UK tax-paying individual donor who has paid enough Income or Capital Gains Tax to cover all their charitable donations given under Gift Aid in any one tax year. Joint name Declarations, will be entered as 2 Declarations with separate reference details and donors will be treated as 2 tax-paying individuals - any donations received will be split 50/50
