If you complete a Self Assessment tax return and are entitled to a refund, you can choose to have all or part of the repayment sent directly to Resources for Autism. You’ll need to fill out the SA100 form in your tax return pack, or you can download a form here.
You can claim Income Tax relief on gifts or sales below market value to Resources for Autism from shares and securities listed on the London Stock Exchange (or on recognised foreign stock exchanges), units in an Authorised Unit Trust (AUT), shares in a UK Open-Ended Investment Company (OEIC), Securities on the Plus-Listed market operated by PLUS Markets plc (but not the Plus Traded or the Plus Quoted markets), holdings in certain foreign collective investment schemes (schemes set up outside the UK that are similar to AUTs and OEICs) and land and property in the UK.
You can claim Capital Gains tax relief when you give any asset to a charity or sell any asset to a charity for less than its market value. If you give or sell to us an asset for less than it cost you, you’re treated as making ‘no gains or loss’ for Capital Gains tax purposes, and won’t have to pay any Capital Gains tax.
Donating shares to Resources for Autism is one of the most tax-effective ways you can give money. You won’t have to pay any Capital Gains tax on the shares and you can claim Income Tax relief too. If you are a higher-rate taxpayer and give us shares worth £1,000, you will pay £400 less in Income Tax. In addition, you will not have to pay Capital Gains tax on any increase in the value of the shares since you bought them.
When you make a Gift Aid declaration, we receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate. If you donate £100, we receive an additional £25, making your gift worth £125, at no extra cost to you.
If you donate online, you can sign your Gift Aid declaration while making your gift.
If you donate offline, or would like us to claim Gift Aid on past or future donations, please download, complete and send us a completed declaration form.
