Gift Aid and Making tax digital
The individual donation limit on the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS) will increase in April. Last November it was annouced in the budget that the change will increase the individual donation limit to £30, which applies to small collections where it is impractical to obtain a Gift Aid declaration. The small donation limit from £20 to £30 will apply to gifts made on or after 6 April. In order to access the GASDS you need to be registered for Gift Aid.
