Gift Aid is a wonderful opportunity to increase the value of the gift at no extra cost to you. As a registered charity Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra can add 25% to the value of your gift if you are a UK taxpayer. Donors must have paid an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities that they donate to will reclaim on their gifts for that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher-rate taxpayer in the UK, you may also claim back the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% and the basic rate of tax at 20% on the gross value of your donation. From April 2010, ‘additional-rate’ taxpayers can claim the difference between the new 50% rate and the basic rate.

An HM Revenue & Customs scheme allows a donor to pass all or part of any tax refund you may be due for a particular tax year (whether as a result of charitable giving, or from other sources) to the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra Trust.
