fees - giving services

where we apply a membership retention or fee

Legally these ‘fees’ are a membership retention from the funds in your account which are applied to our general purpose funds. The amounts retained fund both giver administration and the cost of servicing your membership with us and are inclusive of VAT, except where stated otherwise.

 

Gifts

Applies to gifts into your Giving Account. Where tax is reclaimed from HMRC the fee applies to the whole amount (your gift plus the reclaimed tax). This fee is deducted from the reclaimed tax.

Processing Credit and Debit Card

Additional fees may be charged by your Credit card provider. Please check this directly with them.

Other Fees

We may charge additional fees where we incur additional costs for processing unusual or exceptional transactions - but where we don’t incur the cost, we won’t charge the fee!

International fees

Additional fees apply when we are requested to make payments to recipients based outside the UK. The charges are intended to reflect the additional due diligence that is required for such payments and are subject to VAT.
