HMRC have recently updated their model Gift Aid Declaration for charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASC’s) in order to reflect the current legislation. It should also make it clearer for donors to understand the way in which gift aid works.
The new wording must be included on all new declarations from 6 April 2016, so it is important that all of your gift aid forms are updated before then. You can continue to use current stock until April 2016.
If you had declarations in place before 6 April 2016, either one off or enduring donations, they do not need to be updated.
To view the new model declaration go to the HMRC website.
