For every £1 you give, the taxman will add 25p! Thanks to Gift Aid, Born Free can reclaim tax on donations by UK taxpayers. It doesn’t cost you a penny – just fill in your details.
Have you ever made a one-off gift to Born Free? Or do you give regularly to our charity via Direct Debit? Born Free can reclaim 25p for every £1 donation. So if you give £10, the taxman adds £2.50, giving a total of £12.50. The HMRC require that we remind you that if you have paid less Income Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference to HMRC.
It’s so easy, and it means your gift can help us do even more to protect wild animals and stop suffering. Thank you!
All you have to do is:
If you pay 40% tax and give us £100 we will receive a further £25 from HMRC, making £125. This is the gross donation. However, you can also claim relief at 20% on the gross donation (being the difference between higher rate tax and basic rate tax), reducing the tax you pay by £25.
