Small donations scheme limit rises in April

From 6th April, the amount of ‘top up’ charities can claim for small donations will increase from £5000 to £8000, under the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme.

(As agreed in Parliament in December 2015.)

GASDS allows eligible charities and community amateur sports clubs to claim ‘top-up’ payments on cash donations of £20 or less. The official guidance from HM Revenue and Customs has now been updated with this figure. In particular:

Claiming a top-up payment on small charitable donations‘.
