Deja vu all over again

May 10, 2012

A Bill will be introduced to reduce burdens on charities, enabling them to claim additional payments on small donations.

(From the Queen’s Speech yesterday)

You mean the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme?  The one which was announced (at para 1.139) of Budget 2011?

introducing a Gift Aid small donations scheme. This will allow charities to claim Gift Aid on up to £5,000 of small donations per year without the need for Gift Aid declarations.

The one where there’s an open consultation (that doesn’t close till 25 May)?  The one which I responded to myself on May 2nd?  That Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme?

Yea.  So apparently a Bill will be introduced.  Whatever the result of the consultation.  So THAT’S not a pointless waste of time, then.  Right?
