Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a UK tax incentive that enables tax-effective giving by individuals to charities in the UK.  It allows a charity to reclaim from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) basic rate income tax paid on a gift, equating to 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 donated.

To gift aid your donation to SYD UK you will need to provide your contact details and tick the declaration that you are a UK tax payer and would like SYD UK to reclaim tax on your donation(s). 

In order to gift aid, you need to keep your contact details up to date.  Please contact SYD UK via if you:

  • Want to cancel this Gift Aid declaration
  • Change your name, email address, phone number or home address
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code.
