Scottish based charities claimed £80m of Gift Aid last year

Responding to a parliamentary question on how much Gift Aid charities based in Scotland have received in each of the last three years, the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury said:

“The amount of Gift Aid paid to charities that have indicated to HMRC that they are registered in Scotland is £80 million in each of 2016, 2017 and 2018. Some of these charities may also be registered in England and Wales or Northern Ireland.”
