The HMRC has developed a new online claiming system called Charities Online, which went live on 22 April 2013.
Unless using the onerous manual form, all claims will need to be processed using the new online system. There is a transitional period when the R68 (i) – complete online and post version – will continue to be accepted (probably until September 2013).
Churches using the Gift Aid Lite Scheme will not be directly affected by this as the work will be dealt with by the Diocesan Office.
After looking through the official information published by HMRC, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Sue Warren (0161 828 1424).
