We received a nominee assignment letter from HMRC, what does it mean?

Following registering your charity with Swiftaid each authorised official at your charity will receive a letter from HMRC (typically within 4 weeks) explaining that Swiftaid is now a nominee. This means that Swiftaid is able to submit Gift Aid claims to HMRC on behalf of your charity, giving your charity a completely automated Gift Aid experience.

The letter will look something like this:

Please note: One charity can assign multiple agents/nominees to help them process Gift Aid. This means your charity can continue to claim Gift Aid as normal on all other declarations that lie outside of Swiftaid’s system.

Swiftaid will only process Gift Aid on donations made through sources linked to your account by donors that are also on the system.
