New charity shop Gift Aid rules to be announced.

HMRC is to introduce new rules that will dramatically reduce the numbers of letters that charities must send to donors in order to claim gift aid on their donations to charity shops.

From April 2013, in each tax year, donors will be able to make a single gift aid declaration that covers sale proceeds from donations of up to £100 if the charity operates the shop directly, or £1,000 if the goods are sold by a trading subsidiary. 

Donors will only need to be contacted by the charity again if income from the sale of their donated goods exceeds those amounts.
