As the Anaphylaxis Campaign is a registered charity, donations made by individuals to us are tax free, known as tax relief.
Donating through Gift Aid means the Anaphylaxis Campaign can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give and it won’t cost you any extra.
Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations made by donors who are UK tax payers.
In order for us to claim Gift Aid, you need to complete a simple form and we will take care of the rest. You can include all donations from the last 4 years, but make sure to tell us about any tax years where you didn’t pay enough tax.
Higher Rate Tax Payers
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate, you may be entitled to additional tax relief.
You can claim back the difference between the tax you’ve paid on your donation to the Anaphylaxis Campaign and what we claimed back through the Gift Aid scheme when you fill in your Self Assessment tax return.
You must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to adjust your tax code.
If you don’t fill in a Self Assessment tax return, contact HMRC to tell them about your charity donations.
Through Payroll Giving, you can donate straight from your wages or pension before tax is deducted from your income.
The tax relief you get depends on whether you are a lower, higher or additional rate taxpayer. You can find out more by visiting the government website here.
Leaving gifts to charity in your will
A gift you make to the Anaphylaxis Campaign in your will can reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax paid on the value of your estate.
