GifTap App supports you to ensure every penny you donate to any UK registered charity whether it’s by cash, a bucket collection or an online payment we help to increase the donation by 25%. We are a social enterprise empowering people and charities to achieve maximum social outcome from your donations.
GifTap also supports individuals who are on a high tax band (earning £43,001 or more) to reclaim 20% income tax on the total donation each year without it impacting the Gift Aid claimed by their charities. Millions of pounds are unclaimed by charities and individuals each year. We want to make sure your donations go the extra mile and gives you the added satisfaction.
How does the App work?
Every time you make a donation log the amount, charity name (or registered number) and check the date to reflect when you made the donation before clicking ‘Done’. We call this process GifTap or GifTapping. It takes less than three clicks, that’s no more than three seconds to GifTap a donation and increase it by 25%. You do not pay GifTap anything or make the donation to your charity via GifTap. You make your donation to the charity via normal channels, either it’s cash, online payment, bucket drop or standing orders. We will never take any donations from you. Just remember to GifTap every donation on the App.
How does GifTap claim GiftAid for your charity?
For example if you donate £100 (it can be low as 1p), GifTap will support your charity to increase the donation to £125 by claiming 25% tax relief on your behalf from HMRC. The only catch is that you must be a UK tax payer (e.g. you have a job or self employed or pay tax on pension or on shares)
Even better for higher earners
If you are a higher earner (earning £43,001 or more) then you could be entitled to receive a refund of £20 based on an example of £100 (20%). Which means as a higher earner you’re only out of pocket by £80 if you made £100 donation but your charity receives £125 from the original donation of £100. If this is confusing, it’s ok you’re not alone, because millions of people in the UK don’t record or declare their donations on their tax return. GifTap will provide the information for free to claim a refund from HMRC if you regularly log all your donations on the GifTap App.
