Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Increase your gift by 25%. A Gift Aid declaration allows HMC to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to HMC we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Halal Monitoring Committee to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Halal Monitoring Committee will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Halal Monitoring Committee receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Over the years, the demand for Halal certified products has increased dramatically. The global market in Halal is estimated to be valued in excess of £230bn. The UK market alone is valued between £4.2bn – £5bn.

Muslims in the UK who number approximately 3% of the population (2.5m people) consume 20% of all meat!. For Muslims, there is no choice but to consume Halal, which is a central tenet of Faith. With the growing awareness on the issues of Halal, consumers are looking for additional assurance before consuming meat – they are looking for suppliers to be certified by an independent organisation who has authenticated the meat as Halal.

Also, many Muslim Countries including Malaysia, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia will only accept export meat which has undergone a rigid vetting procedure.

Numerous companies continue to choose the HMC Halal certification, whilst enjoying the marketing privileges strictly verified meat offers.
