Scope's Gift Aid terms and conditions

Retail Gift Aid is based on the agency agreement between Scope Trading Ltd. and you, the Scope supporter.

By signing declaration form you confirm that:

  • You are UK Tax payer and have paid or will pay at least the amount of UK income of capital Gains tax to cover the tax reclaimed on you donations to Scope and other Charities and CASC in the tax year. VAT and council tax do not qualify. You agree for Scope to claim Gift Aid on all proceeds raised from the sale of your goods

  • You would like your donations of any money raised from sales of your goods treated as Gift Aid donations. You will be given unique donor reference number which will be scanned every time we sell your goods.

  • You wish Scope Trading Ltd to act as your agent in selling the goods you have brought into the shop. (An administration charge of 5% including VAT will be applied).

  • You are not acting as a business in bringing goods in for sale to any of the shops belonging to Scope.

  • Commission of 5% will be charged to all proceeds from the sale of your goods. Gift Aid will be claimed to the net proceeds from the sale of your goods i.e. after deduction of commission fee.

  • Scope will sell your goods on your behalf and reserves the right to determine the appropriate selling price. Any goods that are unsuitable for sale or goods that Scope is unable to sell will be recycled or disposed of and cannot be returned to you.

  • We reserve the right to terminate this agreement at any time.

  • We will contact you periodically by post or email to advise you when your goods have been sold. We will confirm the gross value of the proceeds from the sale of your goods which we hope you will chose to donate to Scope. If we do not receive reply from you within 21 day we will assume that you wish to donate the net proceeds to Scope.

  • If you have not paid sufficient Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax to cover Gift Aid claimed by Charity on all your donations, HMRC may seek to recover this sum from you as it is your responsibility to pay any difference. 

  • You will have 21 days to contact us in writing if you chose to retain part or all of the net proceeds from the sale of your goods. In these circumstances you may need to consider your position in terms of capital gains tax and income tax. Scope reserves the right to terminate this agency agreement.
