Hi, hoping someone can help. I am working though the questions in the PTC Kaplan book, got to no.39, and got stuck. The answer shows that the Peter, the employer made a Gift Aid payment for £540. Why does it extend the tax band for peter and other questions the gift aid relief is deducted as a relief for the tax computation? (as in question35) Would apprieciate any response..thanks

    Is it because Peter has trading income and something to do with having trading income/or a director that the tax band is extended rather than deduct gift aid from income?

    Not got access to the book I'm afraid. However in Peter's tax computation any payments he's made to charity will be eligible for further tax relief if he is a higher rate taxpayer - this is Peter as an individual.
    The treatment would be different if Peter was employed and made charitable donations from his salary. This would be treated as a deduction from income if covered under the 'payroll giving' rules. Does this help?
