Detail of outcome
The consultation contributed to the The Donations to Charity (Gift Aid Declarations) Regulations 2016.
The government announced at Autumn Statement 2013 that it would give intermediaries, operating within the charity sector, a greater role in administering Gift Aid.
Since then HMRC have been working closely with the charity sector and intermediaries to develop a simpler way of giving through SMS text messaging and through online platforms.
These regulations will be of particular interest to:
- intermediaries that collect money on the behalf of charities
- charities that use intermediaries
- donors who donate to charities through intermediaries
