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.

Plant Suspended, Pending Allegations of Cruelty

Plant Suspended, Pending Allegations of Cruelty

The Food Standards Agency has suspended Simply Halal, a red meat plant following allegations of animal cruelty reported by the Sunday Mirror using undercover recordings. The publicly available video footage is truly shocking and horrific.

Animal cruelty of any form cannot be tolerated and is against Halal integrity. Simply Halal is a BRC accredited plant, under the inspection and supervision of two meat inspectors and a vet appointed by the Food Standards Agency [1]. The Food Standards Agency is responsible for meat inspection duties in approved meat premises in England, Scotland and Wales. It is the role of the Agency to help ensure that the meat industry safeguards the health of the public, and the health and welfare of animals at slaughter. Simply Halal employs its own trained slaughtermen, hence we are shocked that these events have occurred.


Nadeem Adam at HMC said; “Unfortunately, some people will take this opportunity to attack halal. This is not about halal or non-halal, this is about animal cruelty and it is totally unacceptable. Clearly lessons will need to be learned and additional safeguards deployed.”


HMC has also launched a full internal investigation.
