This course will explain in detail the GASDS and in particular the difference between the basic ‘Top Up’ and the more details ‘Community Building’ The course will focus on the requirements of the ‘Top Up’ in particular how the compliance with normal Gift Aid can affect the ‘Top Up and what charities should be doing to comply.
At the end of the course, delegates will have learned:
- The basic concept of GASDS as an additional source of income through the concept of a ‘top up’ payment on small cash donations of less than £8000 per tax year.
- The fundamental differences between normal Gift Aid and GASDS, and why GASDS is in fact not actually ‘Gift Aid’ but a payment from ‘public funds’.
- GASDS is not a ‘free gift' but has a number of qualifications – compliant Gift Aid history, good track record of claims, compliant ratio of Gift Aid to GASDS claim amounts.
- The additional concept of the ‘community buildings’ payment which allows for a further GASDS collections where conditions of meetings for charitable objectives are held within specified buildings with other conditions including frequency, attendance and objectives
