Re: claiming the tax back

If you give money to a charity as a UK tax payer, Gift Aid means the CHARITY gets the tax you paid on that income. You don't get it yourself it's just as if you never earned that money for tax purposes. e.g. you give £1000 but the charity gets £1200.

It's a great system.
