What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim the tax that you have already paid on your donations through UK income tax or capital gains tax. All donations (excluding those made through the Charities Aid Foundation) are eligible for the scheme, including regular gifts such as Standing Orders. We can claim Gift Aid on donations made in the last four years and on future donations once we receive your Gift Aid Declaration.
Why do I need to make a declaration?
The declaration gives Hear for Norfolk the right to reclaim the tax from HMRC on your donations.
By making the Gift Aid declaration, you are confirming that you are happy for us to do this.
How do I know if I am a UK taxpayer?
You are a UK tax payer if:
- Tax is taken from your wages or pension before you receive them
- You have to fill in a self-assessment form
- You have any taxable savings, or a pension plan, or investment income you have recently paid any capital gains tax, or expect to pay it in the near future – for example on the sale of a property or shares.

How can you leave Hear for Norfolk a gift in your will?
If you have not yet written your Will, we recommend you speak to a solicitor who can ensure your estate is handled in accordance with your wishes. Your solicitor can also advise you on how leaving a charitable legacy can lower the Inheritance Tax payable on your estate. The Law Society website can assist in finding a solicitor if necessary – www.lawsociety.org.uk.
If you already have a Will you can add a Codicil without rewriting the whole Will. This is a short statement that will be read at the same time as your Will. It needs to be witnessed and kept together with your Will.
You are not required to inform us if you decide to leave a legacy gift to Hear for Norfolk. However, if you are happy to hear from us, we would be delighted to thank you and keep you updated on our work.
