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.

Personalised Microsite! Has your Charity got theirs?

Posted by Redbourn Business Systems on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 Under: Microsite

Our AdvantageNFP Fundraiser Enterprise customers are already benefiting from our AdvantageNFP web modules which integrate with their websites.  These provide a platform to share information, capture mailing preferences, lifestyle information, searches and forums, and even allow for donations to be collected online, all in a secure environment with immediate updates to and from the AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database.  But for our Solo and Professional customers, why not start with the simplified solution offered by Charity Choice.  Although it won’t update your AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database directly, in other respects their service is very good and perhaps best of all it is quick to implement and completely FREE.

Charity Choice offers every UK registered charity a FREE personalised microsite entry within their online directory including a safe, secure and commission FREE online donation facility.

Charity Choice enables supporters to give to their favourite charities in the way they choose. It gives charities a choice in promoting the information and appeals that are most important to them via their own easy to use admin area.

Supported by the Institute of Fundraising, Charity Choice is a place where charities, donors, volunteers and fundraisers can come together to help the many charities in the UK in a variety of ways. Through Charity Choice, supporters can choose how to give and which charity to give to, providing information on over 160,000 registered charities including all charities registered in England and Wales.

So what are you waiting for?  Get your microsite set up for FREE now, by visiting the Are You A Charity page.

You’re probably asking, ‘So what’s the catch?’ Well we have read the small print and there is no catch.  The Website includes a fundraising tool (the 'Donation Facility') which enables a Website user to donate money to the Charity.  Charity Choice do not charge for the Donation Facility and will not make any deduction from any donations made to the Charity through the Donation Facility, apart from transaction fees levied by WorldPay, their payment processor. The donor's card provider may also levy transfer fees.

The Charity must provide Charity Choice with the details of a UK bank account into which it would like any donations to the Charity to be transferred. Charity Choice will transfer any donations for the Charity to the specified bank account within 14 days of the donation being made.

Where the Charity is registered for automatic collection of Gift Aid, Charity Choice will (subject to a donor's declaration of eligibility) make Gift Aid reclaims from HMRC and transfer the sums received from HMRC to the Charity.

There is an option to upgrade to a premium package for £89 + VAT per annum which will increase your exposure.  But why not get started today with your FREE microsite.

Longer term you may find you are ready to upgrade to our own web integration modules which fully integrate with your existing AdvantageNFP Fundraiser database and provide a more comprehensive microsite service.

If you would like further information on Charity Choice or on our AdvantageNFP Web modules for Enterprise customers, please contact marketing.
