Comic Relief’s Gift Aid electronic claim interface

Comic Relief has made its software, for making Gift Aid claims through the new Charities Online process, available for other charities to use on an open source basis.

The software directly links a Gift Aid database with HM Revenue and Customs’ Government Gateway, for large value claims or for a large number of claims. It will need a certain amount of technical expertise to do the initial set up, and it does not support the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme.
