More milestones reached by Eproductive clients

The Retail Gift Aid scheme continues to be an important source of income for charity shops and 2015 saw many of our clients reach more fantastic milestones.

This includes Break, a charity providing specialist and community based serviced for vulnerable young people across East Anglia, which has now raised more than £500,000 in Gift Aid from their shops. Retail Business Manager Lesley Leigh said: “Eproductive has been extremely supportive with our Gift Aid set-up and management. They work closely with HMRC and regularly review and improve systems, so from handling the donor in the shops to claiming from HMRC the whole admin process is a simple, streamlined procedure.”

Katharine House Hospice – providing palliative care and support in the Oxfordshire area – has now raised over £250,000 each from the scheme. Area Retail & Trading Manager Scott Bloomfield said: “I would just like to thank Eproductive for their help and support over the past few years, making the whole process of capturing and claiming Gift Aid very simple and straightforward.”

Eproductive were pioneers of Retail Gift Aid, and we expect to have enabled £200 million to have been claimed from HMRC by our 90 charity clients by the end of 2016.

The scheme will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year.
