What Are Aggregated Gift Aid Donations?

advantagenfp-blog:

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.

Make the Most Out of the Rugby World Cup 2015

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Monday, August 24, 2015 Under: Fundraising

th September marks the start of the Rugby World Cup 2015.  20 nations will compete for the ultimate prize in Rugby, the Webb Ellis Cup, which was last won by New Zealand in 2011.

Host nation England meet Fiji at Twickenham Stadium in the opening game of the Tournament. The four home unions England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will all be hoping to safely get through the pool stages and then see how far they can progress in the tournament.

With only two teams from each pool qualifying for the knock out stage, competition will be fierce in what promises to be the most exciting Tournament in rugby history.

Why not get everyone in to the spirit of the Rugby World Cup and organise a sweepstake in the office to boost the fun during the big event and raise funds for your organisation. You can also get your supporters involved and ask them to run their own sweepstake with friends, family and colleagues by picking out a team at random and making an agreed donation! 

·         Decide how much you are going to charge to take part, tell everyone that half of the money you collect will go to the winner and half will go to your organisation. 

·         Print out the different teams and put them into a hat for people to pick a ticket.

·         Make a note on the sweepstake form of everyone’s team.

You could also include additional games such as guess the highest try scorer of the World Cup? How many drop kicks will happen during all the games? There are lots of ways to make the tournament more exciting and raise more money for your organisation.
