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.

How accurate is your data?

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 Under: CRM

Ensure your charity’s data that is being entered in to your AdvantageNFP Fundraiser CRM database system is up to date by using AFD Postcode Plus.  Postcode Plus delivers comprehensive address look up at lightning speed from over 29 million addresses for delivery point (letterbox) accuracy. Postcode Plus includes the Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File (PAF).

If your charity or not for profit organisation has a high turnover of staff, volunteers or temporary staff, then Postcode Plus can help ensure your data is being entered accurately into your AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database. Postcode Plus can also make staff even more efficient with rapid address entry, saving 80% of keystrokes entering addresses.

Accurate data within your charity fundraising database will help prevent letters and mailings from being delayed, returned or lost through poor address details. Postcode Plus verifies correct postal addresses to the specific unit, flat or house number.

Postcode Plus is ideal for intensive address list management or sorting out poor data. It can also quickly provide missing postcodes or correct faulty postcodes.  This is now essential when claiming Gift Aid.  New rules from the HMRC means you will have to include a postcode on all UK addresses being submitted for Gift Aid claims. The new rules will take effect from 6th April 2015.

The other valuable data sets that are included for FREE as part of the package include AFD Just Built, Censation (Geodemographic Classification System) and Bartholomews Maps.
