Payments of Gift Aid to Charities

Chris Taggart made this Freedom of Information request to HM Revenue and Customs

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by HM Revenue and Customs.

Dear HM Revenue & Customs,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I would like to request the following information:

Full list of individual Gift Aid payments to charities for the most recent year for which you have data, as referenced in table 10.1 on your website at http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/charities/m.... Please also include payments of Transitional Top Up Relief. Please include any identifiers for the charities that your hold (e.g. their Charity Registration Number).

If this information is held by an outside contractor then it is your responsibility under the FOIA to obtain that information.

If the arrangements for any of the agreements with the Publisher have been delegated or passed onto another public body, please can you inform me of this and if possible transfer the request to that public body. My preferred format to receive this information is by electronic means, specifically in a machine-readable form (e.g. CSV, Word or Excel Documents rather than scans of printouts).

If you need any clarification of this request or if it is too broad in any way please feel free to email me. If some parts of this request are more difficult to answer than others please release the answerable material as it is available rather than hold up the entire request for the contested data.

If FOI requests of a similar nature have already been asked could you please include your responses to those requests. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Taggart

Request, FOI (Security FOI Team), HM Revenue and Customs
