HMRC publishes new CD toolkit to help charities boost Gift Aid income

HM Revenue & Customs () has published a new CD toolkit to help charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) boost their income through Gift Aid.

It contains clear, basic ./guidance, templates, an interactive claim form and other materials to help charities and CASCs get started with Gift Aid and use Gift Aid in a variety of fundraising
situations.

The toolkit is one of a number of measures for charities that were outlined in the 2008 Budget by the Chancellor.

David Richardson Director of Charities, Assets and Residence at HMRC, said: “I hope that the Toolkit will encourage more charities – especially the smaller ones – to take up Gift Aid and boost their income. We have worked with charities to develop the Toolkit which should reduce administrative burdens. Our aim is to make Gift Aid easy for all charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs by providing the tools and ./guidance to help them at every step.”

The new Toolkit can be obtained by calling HMRC Charities on 08453 020 203 or e-mailing charities@hmrc.gov.uk.
