Bandaging Your Tax Blues by Donating Directly to RAPAID

In a world where emergencies can strike at any time, having access to immediate medical assistance can make all the difference. That’s why we’re donating as many RAPAID kits as possible to taxis up and down the UK to help stop the bleed wherever necessary.

And whilst we’re supporting your communities with our life-saving emergency bandages kits, you’re supporting us with your donations! A massive thank you to everyone who has supported us so far – and for those still considering it, perhaps this will persuade you to consider giving – did you know that supporting us can offer companies significant tax benefits? If your business is looking for a charity to sponsor, then we might just be the choice for you – with tax advantages and CSR benefits to boot!

This article delves into the tax advantages of contributing directly to the RAPAID initiative, and how your company’s generosity can go even further.

Corporate Giving for Tax Relief

Corporate giving is not just a philanthropic gesture; it’s also a savvy financial move for your business. Your limited company can pay less Corporation Tax when it gives money to a charity like ours. When you donate to us, you can deduct the value of the donations from your total business profits before you pay tax. This means that by supporting RAPAID, your business not only contributes to a worthy cause, but also enjoys reduced tax liability.

Boosting your CSR

Corporate donations to charities like RAPAID offer significant Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) benefits. By giving back, your company demonstrates its commitment to social causes, enhances its reputation, and attracts socially-conscious stakeholders. Engaging in philanthropy boosts employee morale and strengthens relationships with customers and the community. Integrating philanthropy into your CSR strategy builds a more sustainable and compassionate business approach, while making a real difference in your UK communities.

We even have a suite of marketing materials you can use to showcase how you’re supporting us, with graphics that you can upload to your website, an email signature you can use and a news story template for you to tailor as your own press release.

Tax Relief on Individual Donations

HMRC doesn’t just reward company gifts to charities – you can also benefit from giving as an individual! Picture this: you make a donation to us, knowing that your contribution is making a tangible impact in emergency situations, and as an added bonus you may gain a reduction in you tax bill too.

Donations to registered charities, like RAPAID, are typically tax-deductible under UK tax laws. So, by supporting us, you’re not only assisting in providing essential resources for emergency response, but also benefitting from valuable savings.

Gift Aid Boost

And even if you don’t benefit from reduced tax, you can boost the value of your giving, simply by being a UK tax payer. Ever heard of the Gift Aid scheme? It’s a game changer when it comes to maximising your donation. When you donate to us and complete a Gift Aid declaration, RAPAID will claim 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate – and that’s at no extra cost to you! This means your donation goes further in supporting our mission, and you’re increasing your tax benefits. That’s a win-win.
