CBM works in over in 60 low and middle income countries across Africa; Asia and the Pacific; Central and Latin America, through our life changing projects.
Every penny of every gift you give through CBM UK’s gift catalogue helps support our excellent projects overseas in the poorest places of the world. Where your money goes depends on which department your gift falls under.
Donating through Gift Aid means charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you or CBM UK any extra.
You must tell the charities you support if you stop paying enough tax.
Higher rate taxpayers:
If you pay tax at the higher or additional rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation. Do this either:
• through your Self Assessment tax return
• by asking HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to amend your tax code
Example: You donate £100 to a charity - they claim Gift Aid to make your donation £125. You pay 40% tax so you can personally claim back £25.00 (£125 x 20%).
With Payroll Giving, you don’t pay the difference between the higher and basic rate of tax on your donation.
Getting tax relief sooner:
In your Self Assessment tax return, you normally only report things from the previous tax year.
But for Gift Aid, you can also claim tax relief on donations you make in the current tax year (up to the date you send your return) if you either:
• want tax relief sooner
• won’t pay higher rate tax in current year, but you did in the previous year
You can’t do this if:
• you miss the deadline (31 January if you file online)
• your donations don’t qualify for Gift Aid - your donations from both tax years together must not be more than 4 times what you paid in tax in the previous year
If you don’t have to send a tax return, contact HMRC and ask for a P810 form. You’ll need to submit it by 31 January after the end of the previous tax year.
