To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Abolition of Gift Aid donations threshold

 

(1)    

The Chancellor of the Exchequer must carry out an assessment of the impact on

 

charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs of amending the Gift Aid Small

 

Donations Scheme so as to remove the 10% Gift Aid donations threshold that

 

must be met in order to access the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme, including

 

an assessment of the differential impact on different sizes of charities and

 

Community Amateur Sports Clubs concerned.

 

(2)    

The Chancellor of the Exchequer must lay a report of the assessment before the

 

House of Commons within six months of the passing of this Act.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

Charities and CASCs must make Gift Aid exemption claims on donations received in order to make

 

a claim under the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme. The total Gift Aid donations must be at least

 

10% of the amount of the small donations on which top-up payments are claimed. The new clause

 

would require the Chancellor to assess the impact of abolishing this requirement.

“Review of anti-fraud measures in relation to Gift Aid Small Donations

 

Scheme

 

(1)    

The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall, within six months of the passing of this

 

Act, publish an assessment of the efficacy of anti-fraud measures designed to

 

regulate the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme, including, but not limited to, the

 

Gift Aid donations threshold.

 

(2)    

The assessment shall have particular reference to the efficacy of the matching

 

requirement.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would require the government to publish an assessment of anti-fraud measures

 

designed to regulate the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme.

 


 

Rebecca Long Bailey

 

NC3

 

Parliamentary Star    

To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Scouts, Guides and Army, Navy and Air Force Cadet Branches to be

 

exempted from connected charities rule

 

(1)    

Section 5 of the Small Charitable Donations Act 2012 is amended as follows.

 

(2)    

After subsection (5), insert—

 

“(5A)    

For the purposes of this Act, local Scout Groups, Guide Groups, Army,

 

Navy and Air Force Cadet groups are not considered to be connected.””

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would ensure that local Scout Groups, Guide Groups and Army, Navy and Air

 

Force Cadet Branches are able to claim under the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme individually,

 

rather than being considered as part of single national charities for the purposes of the Scheme.
