Powerful & Intuitive Fundraising CRM Database Software

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.

The AAA National Conference 2013

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 Under: CRM

The Advantage
NFP team powered by Redbourn Business Systems recently sponsored and exhibited at the Air Ambulance Association’s National Conference in London.

Approximately 200 delegates from the air ambulance community attended the conference to engage and network, sharing ideas and building partnerships. The day followed a comprehensive agenda covering charity, clinical and operational topics.

The AdvantageNFP team had a great day meeting some of our existing customers using AdvantageNFP Fundraiser CRM database and engaging with a number of other Air Ambulance fundraising teams to discuss their fundraising CRM database requirements.

Steve Cast, Managing Director of Redbourn Business Systems gave a presentation on ‘Factually Researched Wealth Intelligence for Dummies’ which was well received and generated great interest. The presentation covered the benefits of Wealth Screening and identifying the “hidden gems” in your fundraising CRM database.  These are donors who can make a one off gift, or who can influence a single gift, of at least £5,000.  We commonly refer to these individuals as ‘Liquid Asset Millionaires’.  

The evening was host to the first ever National Air Ambulance Awards of Excellence, which saw some of our customers with coveted awards. The AdvantageNFP team would like to congratulate London’s Air Ambulance who scooped four awards including Pilot of the Year, Doctor of the Year, Paramedic of the Year and Dr Gareth Davies with his ‘Lifetime Achievement Award; Devon Air Ambulance who took the Campaign of the Year award and Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance who’s aircrew were presented with the Special Incident award.

Bill Sivewright, Chairman of the Association of Air Ambulances commented, “Celebration of success, innovation and commitment of staff and volunteers is a central strategy of the Association and these Awards are a clear demonstration of the strategy in action.  It is intended that they will encourage competition and best practice across all disciplines of pre-hospital care and deliver real improvements in patient outcomes.  So, every winner should be immensely proud of their success this year as trailblazer.”
