This benefits Marlborough College Foundation only. Click here for full details.

Claiming back higher rate tax

If you pay higher rate tax you can claim the difference between the higher rate of tax and the basic rate on the total ‘gross’ value of your donations.

e.g. If you donate £100, the value of the donation is £125 and you can claim back £25 (£125 @ 20 %) if you pay tax at 40%.

Keeping records of your gifts to charity

If you are a higher rate tax payer and want to claim tax relief for donations you need to keep records of these by date, value and recipient charity. If you normally complete a tax return, complete the section on Gift Aid Payments. If you do not complete a return, you can provide the details on form P810 Tax Review.
