Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we can claim an additional 28 pence from HMRC, helping your donation go further. This means that £10 can be turned into £12.80 just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid. Imagine what a difference that could make, and it doesn't cost you a thing.
So, if you want your donation to go further, Gift Aid it. Just complete the Gift Aid form below and send it back to us.
To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount we will claim in the tax year. Companies may also make donations. They should pay the full amount to The Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal and deduct this amount when working out profits for corporation tax purposes.
The Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal will forward details of your gift to HMRC in order to reclaim the tax. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you may recover the difference between the higher rate of tax and the standard rate on the gross value of the gift by entering the details on your tax return.
On the tax return form there is the option for the taxpayer to instruct HMRC to give the difference between the standard rate and higher rate to charity. Taxpayers who wish to do this should quote reference BAN26SG. All rebates will then be sent directly from HMRC to the Royal Hospital Chelsea Appeal.
