    Charity shop statement

    Charity shop statement 9th Oct 19 at 6:01 PM
    Just received an email from local charity shop saying:

    "I am pleased to tell you that proceeds from selling your goods have raised 43.88 (net of commission and VAT). To donate this sum to our charity you need do nothing further. This will allow us to reclaim an additional 10.97 in Gift Aid in the tax year to 05 Apr 2020."

    Is this information which has to be declared in some way on my next tax return or is this just to inform me that they will be claiming Gift Aid on this amount. Surely I don't get tax relief on this amount?

    Are you a higher rate taxpayer?

    You need to declare it on your personal tax return. If you're a h/r taxpayer you'll get h/r tax relief. If you're a non taxpayer, you'll have to pay the tax back to HMRC that the charity have claimed.

    No, not a higher rate taxpayer.
