How Gift Aid works

The Gift Aid Scheme has been made much more user-friendly for the average donor with the abolition of the minimum donation requirement.

  • If you are a basic or higher rate UK taxpayer, the Gift Aid Scheme allows us to reclaim a further 25p on every £1 you donate to us. This really boosts our income – and doesn’t cost you a single penny extra! 
  • If you pay higher rate tax, you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40 and/or 50 per cent and the basic rate of tax 20 per cent on the total 'gross' value of your donation.  This means that your donation of £1000 will be worth £1250 for Historic Royal Palaces and will mean you can claim back £250 if you pay tax at 40 per cent (£1250 × 20%) or £370.50 if you pay tax at 50 per cent (£1250 × 20%) plus (£1250 × 10%).
