Changes To Gift-Aid

Because Gift-Aid is linked to how much tax you pay, and because the former government changed tax nearly three years ago, the amount charities claim back by Gift-Aid is going to be reduced from April. Confused? Stewardship explain how it works. If you’re giving to charities, you might want to think about increasing it from April to cover the reduction (an increase of 11% is the figure I’ve heard will cover it if you’re not in the higher tax-bands, in which case you’re probably not a youth worker, and you can probably get an accountant to sort it out for you).
