Swiftaid is authorised to create declarations on behalf of millions of UK taxpayers.

We are authorised to create Gift Aid declarations on behalf of millions of UK taxpayers so that your charity can benefit from more Gift Aid. Once Gift Aid is found we give donors the opportunity to opt-out before the declaration is created.

Frequently asked questions

  • Currently, Swiftaid can only process donations collected in the current tax year.

  • Swiftaid charges a fee of 10% (+VAT) of the claimed Gift Aid amount. For example, for every £10 claimed in Gift Aid, Swiftaid charges £1 plus VAT. There is a £10 minimum fee for any claim.

    The fee includes:
    ✅ Administration cost
    ✅ Claim processing
    ✅ Onboarding support
    ✅ Donor validation checking
    ✅ Donor support
    ✅ Record keeping for HMRC

  • The optimal time to submit your spreadsheet is the week following the 5th of April. This gives you time to rectify any issues with your submission, that Swiftaid may highlight, with plenty of time to resubmit before the deadline. Issues with submissions are uncommon, but they do happen from time to time.

    Submissions must be made by midnight on 19th April 2024, but should only include donations made before midnight on 5th April 2024.

  • Swiftaid notifies donors by email when Gift Aid is identified. Donors are provided with an opportunity to cancel the Gift Aid on donations if they so wish.

    Swiftaid operates under “Donor Intermediary Legislation” and must send an annual statement to donors by 31st May, detailing all Gift Aid added on their behalf over the previous tax year.

    Swiftaid are not required to send a statement to an individual if the total value of donations in that tax year is £20 or less or only one Gift Aided donation is made in the tax year.
