From 1st October charities will no longer be able to use the old paper form but will have to claim gift aid through Charities Online. Nearly 15,000 more charities have joined the online system but despite HMRC sending reminder letters, most have still not registered.
According to civilsociety.co.uk, it is anticipated that some large charities will miss the deadline. Some charities were unable to upgrade there IT systems in time and so HMRC has made different arrangements with them.
Andrew Edwards, HMRC’s head of charities, said: “Using Charities Online to make a gift aid repayment claim is quicker and typically takes only three days, rather than the 26 days that it took using the R68(i) paper claim form.”
