David Ainsworth of NCVO explains that the gift aid small donations scheme (GASDS) is not working after only a fraction of the expected amount has been claimed.
He believes the additional, complicated rules about eligibility are off-putting to exactly the small charities and museums that the scheme was meant to help. NCVO are calling on the government to act straight away to reform the scheme so more charities are eligible to use GASDS and it is more straight-forward to make a claim. AIM supports this call whole-heartedly!
