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: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/charities-detailed-guidance-notes/chapter-6-claims-and-returns

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.

Mobilegeddon

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Friday, May 1, 2015 Under: Website & Mobile Friendly




April 21st – the day Google officially launched its mobile friendly ranking algorithm. What does this mean for your website?

Firstly, Google’s new formula only affects search rankings on mobile devices (smart phone and tablets) not desktops and laptops. However, it may have a huge impact given that in March 2015, 36.4m people in the UK accessed the internet using mobile devices (source: Comscore).

The latest algorithm will favour websites that Google defines as mobile friendly, where text is easy to read without having to zoom in or scroll horizontally and the pages avoid unplayable content.

Google claim that “while the mobile friendly change is important, we still use a variety or signals to rank search results. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal – so even if a page with high quality content is not mobile friendly, it could still rank high if it has great content for the query”.

You can check your sites individual pages with the Mobile Friendly Test.  If your site’s pages aren’t mobile friendly there may be a significant decrease in mobile traffic from Google search.

If you need to update your site to make it mobile friendly here are some Google mobile friendly guidelines to help you with that.

To integrate your website directly with your CRM you can use our web modules, contact Marketing for more information.
