Additional information required for Gift Aid claims

A number of sector sources are pointing out that the Charities Online system for claiming Gift Aid coming in from April will require additional information.

Already required to be entered on Gift Aid declarations, the claim to HM Revenue and Customs will need to include each donor’s first name or initials, last name, house name/number and postcode. These details will either need to be handwritten onto the paper form or be attached to the online claim as a spreadsheet – a template will be available from April.
