At Budget 2011 the Chancellor announced that HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) will introduce a new online service which will enable Charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) to submit repayment claims electronically. HMRC are planning to launch the new service for Charities and CASCs, called Charities Online, in April 2013.
Charities Online will replace the current Gift Aid and tax repayments claims form. It will be a way for charities and CASCS to claim Gift Aid, tax repayments on other income and Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme top-up payments by using an online form. Charities Online will also introduce new intelligent forms (iForms) to replace the current HMRC Charity application form, Charities variations form and registration form.
