Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme

25th May 2012




The Chancellor announced at Budget 2011 that a new Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS) would be introduced in 2013. Qualifying charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) will be able to claim a top-up payment equivalent to Gift Aid on small cash donation.

It is intended that the new scheme will be introduced for donations made from 6 April 2013, and will allow charities to claim a top-up equivalent to Gift Aid on up to £5,000 of small donations of money made without a Gift Aid declaration.
