Gift Aid made simple

We're automating Gift Aid

1/3 of all UK Gift Aid goes unclaimed by charities. That's £560m every year.

HMRC has strict guidelines for donation eligibility, how Gift Aid declarations should be treated, special handling for sponsored events, and the Small Donations Scheme for cash/contactless donations.

Managing all of this is hard. But Beacon can help.

Auto-claim building

As payments are saved, Beacon automatically adds the ones eligible for Gift Aid to a new claim, ready for HMRC.
