End of the Tax Year: The Dates You Need to Know

By Stewardship | 24 March 2021

It’s everyone’s favourite time of year… the end of the tax year! We know we’re a little early, but we also know that many of you love to plan ahead when it comes to your giving. So here are all the dates you need to know, to ensure your gifts fall in the 2020/2021 tax year:

  • If you have an existing Direct Debit Instruction in place on your account, your gift will need to be in by 12pm on Monday 29th March.
  • Card payments can be made up until Monday 5th April.
  • Cheques will need to be in our office ready for processing by Friday 26th March.
  • Bank transfers for larger gifts will need to be in our account by Thursday 1st April.

If you miss the deadline, don’t panic! You can make a donation on or after Tuesday 6 April 2021 and ask HMRC to treat this donation as made in 2020-2021 for Gift Aid purposes. A ‘carry back’ can be requested through your tax return or (if you don’t file a tax return) on form P810. There’s just one catch – you cannot submit or amend a carry back claim after filing your tax return.

Why not take a few minutes to think about the causes you support and consider how you may be able to sow a little more generosity in this season. With our Instant Gift Aid feature to boost your giving, we know any extra gifts, big or small, will be a huge blessing to the recipient. And we give thanks most of all for Jesus, who was first so generous to us:

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8 v 9.
