Gift Aid is a simple scheme that enables charities to claim an additional 25p from every £1 donated by UK taxpayers. By completing the Gift Aid declaration, you can increase the value of your gift at no extra cost to yourself.
If a higher rate tax-payer donates £100 to the Manchester Metropolitan Fund, £25 can be added to the value of this gift in Gift Aid. In addition, you can also receive a £25 rebate on this donation when completing the Self-Assessment Form. This means that your £100 donation would actually cost you £75.
If a 45% rate tax-payer donates £100 to the MMU Fund, £25 can be added to the value of this gift in Gift Aid. In addition, you can also receive £31.25 rebate on this donation when completing the Self-Assessment Form. This means that a £100 donation would actually cost you £68.75.
Your company can receive tax benefits from making gifts to charity. As an educational institution, Manchester Metropolitan University has charity status; it is an ‘exempt charitable body’ (the official charity term) and so does not have a registered charity number. For further information about tax-effective giving to the University by a company, please go to the HMRC website.
The University is subject to charity legislation but is not required to register with the Charity Commission and is not regulated by it. As an exempt charity, the University does not have a registered charity number.
Exempt charities are entitled to exactly the same financial benefits as registered charities.
