Don't forget Gift Aid...

Gift Aid is one of the easiest ways to make your donation tax effective. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, Cat Chat will receive an extra 25p from HMRC.

Simply tick the Gift Aid box when you first list an item for charity. Paypal Giving Fund (eBay’s Charity Partner) then collects the Gift Aid from the government and pass it on to your chosen Charity.

Note: you must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax equal to the tax that all the charities you donate to will reclaim from HMRC in the current tax year - currently 25p in the pound.
