Charity Donation

17/01/2019 15:19:28
I have given £50 to a charity in 2017/18.

They then got £12.50 gift aid in addition to this.

I am a higher rate tax payer.

Under the Tax Relief part of the Self Assessment form, which boxes do I put which amounts in?

Hi,

You will need to access to the section Tailor Your Return and from there you will see the question, Did you give to charity? Select yes

I hope this helps.

I can see the boxes, but I am unsure of which figures to put in which box

Hi,

Yes charity donations can, if selected as Gift Aid, effect how much tax you pay in a year. However this only effects Higher Rate Taxpayers. If you are a 20% taxpayer it will not effect your tax.
