Voluntary Contributions

Richard Lowe made this Freedom of Information request to Her Majesty's Treasury

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 successful.

Dear Her Majesty's Treasury,

I would like to know, per year from 2000-01 onwards, how many people have paid voluntary contributions to the Treasury on top of the tax they already pay, and the total amount received annually.

I would also like to know the amount each person has paid, without, naturally, disclosing names.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Lowe

Mr Lowe

Can I just be clear if what you want to know is the number of people who
have made donations or gifts to the exchequer e.g. to reduce the national
debt. I mainly ask because the concept of voluntary contributions also
arises for example in connection with pensions; conceivably, but on the
other hand, some donations could be received from people who are not tax
payers. If there is anything more specific you want to add as to what to
exclude as much as what to include, that would be helpful.
