What Are Aggregated Gift Aid Donations?

You can ‘aggregate’ (add together) donations of £20 or less from assorted donors and present them as a single monetary income item. The total donation on one line cannot be higher than £1,000. (You will need to keep evidence of the individual donations and that they are gift aid applicable).

To claim Gift Aid on aggregated donations, you don’t enter the name and address details of individual donors as this will delay your repayment claim, you can just enter a straightforward description like ‘Wednesday club donors’, the date of the last donation and the total amount raised. This saves valuable time in the data input process without losing any Gift Aid income.

AdvantageNFP Fundraiser users can now combine batches of income, such as donations, that are valid for the claiming of Gift Aid into a single monetary income item, which can subsequently be included in the next Gift Aid online claim.

To read the HMRC rules around Aggregated Gift Aid claims please take a look at the following page on their website, specifically the “Aggregated Claim” section at the end of chapter 6.6:

This indicates that only donations up to the value of a maximum threshold (currently £20.00) can be included in an aggregated donation and that you should keep an audit trail linking the aggregated donation input in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser to the paperwork proving that all donors in the aggregated donation provided Gift Aid Declarations and that each donation was no more than the maximum threshold.

The maximum total amount of a single aggregated donation that can be input into AdvantageNFP Fundraiser is set at £1000 per tax year.

This could also be particularly useful now GDPR has come into force, in that some new donors may indicate that they do not wish to be contacted yet provide a Gift Aid declaration. In this instance you could decide to combine that donation with any other such supporter donations in AdvantageNFP Fundraiser and not create such supporters as new parties within the database.

LinkedIn to Remove Products & Services Pages from Company Pages!

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Monday, March 24, 2014 Under: Social Media

On the 14th April 2014 LinkedIn will switch off products & services pages on your company pages.  In replacement, LinkedIn are introducing Showcase Pages for companies.  The idea behind this is so you can ‘Follow’ specific areas of interest, brands, products, initiatives, events, news, etc. rather than just a company as a whole.

The downside is, all the time and effort you have spent building your products and services pages will all be for nothing.  You can copy and paste the information to a new Showcase page, however you are limited to just 200 characters in the page overview.  It will also mean that you need to regularly publish updates for them to feature in your followers feed.

As for your recommendations, these will be lost completely. 

So for those of you, like me, that have spent time building your company portfolio of products and services, you will need to start over. But hopefully, LinkedIn’s decision that recommendations are no longer fit-for-purpose and that 'follows' are a better approach for measuring popularity on their social network site, will be final.

The date is looming up to the switch off, so you might want to start work on your Showcase pages. Once you have set them up, let us know so we can follow your new pages and help you build your audience again. Don't forget to let your supporters know so they can keep up to date with your organisations news and events.

Whilst your there, if you want to stay up to date with AdvantageNFP, please head over to our new Showcase pages and follow us. These can be found on our Redbourn Business Systems page on the right hand side, as shown in the image below.

For more information please contact marketing.
