45% of gift aid claims are now made online
As the date for the withdrawal of paper gift aid claim forms draws closer, it has been reported that nearly half (45%) of gift aid claims are made using Charities Online.
According to civilsociety.co.uk, HMRC has revealed that 19,000 charities are using the system. Founder of Raising IT, Tom Latchford, said that not enough notice has been given and many charities will struggle to update their databases by the deadline on 30th September.
HMRC is asking charities to make contact if they have concerns about meeting the deadline.
