Tax efficient Giving
Gift Aid is a UK government tax scheme, which enables the Cambridge Philharmonic to claim tax relief on donations from UK tax payers.
To qualify for Gift Aid you must have paid enough income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount that all the charities you donate to will reclaim for the relevant tax year. We will be able to reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you donate. So if you would like to see 25% added on top of your gift, please complete the Gift Aid declaration section on the registration form.
Please note that if you pay income tax at the higher rate, you should include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return in order to receive the additional tax relief due.
Also note that we share necessary data with HM Revenue and Customs to enable us to reclaim the Gift Aid on your donation.
Donations from companies are not eligible for Gift Aid. However, the company can treat the gift as an allowable expense, making a saving on corporation tax.
You can cancel this declaration at any time by notifying us in writing. Please also let us know if you change your name or address, or if your circumstances change so that you no longer pay enough income or capital gains tax to cover the amount claimed by the Cambridge Philharmonic.
