A Practical Guide for Faith-Based Charities on Claiming Gift Aid


Gift Aid is an extremely useful scheme which allows charities to claim the basic rate of tax that donors have paid; however, registering for Gift Aid can be a confusing process. Strengthening Faith Institutions recently ran a webinar discussing how to:

  • Register for Gift Aid and get 25% more on every donation
  • Claim Small Donation Scheme on donations under £30
  • Process Gift Aid
  • Decipher which documentation is required.

The webinar was run by SFI Consultant Dawood Masood FCCA. Dawood studied BSc Accounting and Finance, and has over 10 years of experience in the faith and charity sector. He is the founder of Quba Accountancy and has extensive experience working with charities of all sizes.
