If the donor is a higher rate or additional rate taxpayer, the donor is entitled to claim further tax relief on their donation on the difference between the higher/additional rate of tax (currently 40% and 45% resepctively) and the basic rate in their Self-Assessment tax return. Currently this is 25p in every £1 for higher rate tax payers and 31p in every £1 for additional rate tax payers.

Example for a higher rate tax payer
A donor gives £100 in tax year 2013/2014 (the gross value of the donation to the University is £125). The donor is able to reclaim higher rate relief of £25.00 (£125@20%).

A donation worth £125 to the University has only cost the donor £75.

Example for an additional rate tax payer
A donor gives £100 in tax year 2013/2014 (the gross value of the donation to the University is £125). The donor is able to reclaim additional rate relief of £31.25 (£125@25%).

A donation worth £125 to the University has only cost the donor £68.75.
