Should my charity be concerned about double claiming Gift Aid?

To prevent double claiming Gift Aid on donations, it is recommended that you wait for the results from Swiftaid before claiming any Gift Aid elsewhere on donations included in your submission.

The report provided will contain information about matched donations that now have declarations. Upon submission you are able to add a unique reference number to each donation allowing you to update your records and avoid double claiming.

If your charity benefits from the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS), it is important to have a clear process to exclude these donations from your submissions to Swiftaid.
