How to claim Gift Aid in Charity Shops on Donated Goods

If you’re new to the Charity Retail world, and you want to know how you claim gift aid in charity shops, here’s a short guide to the process of claiming Gift Aid on donated goods.

This might sound pretty complicated, however Gift Aid EPoS from Tengo Software makes it all really simple. The Royal Mail postcode database is built in, so you just need to ask for house name or number, postcode, and the donor’s name – they don’t even have to sign any paperwork, as a receipt is produced with the HMRC compliant Gift Aid declaration printed on it (this can also be emailed to them).

A label is produced that’s unique to the donor, and stuck on each product – it takes very little time, and then you get an extra 25% in Gift Aid from HMRC on each of the items sold!
