The new online Gift Aid filing system will be introduced on 22 April, HMRC has announced.
The new system, called Charities Online, will enable charities make repayment claims electronically.
New HMRC guidance, includes details of the transitional arrangements, which say that HMRC will continue to accept the current paper forms until 30 September.
HMRC said the guidance would explain what Charities Online means for charities and how they can prepare for it.
The new system will require some changes to the information that must be submitted to HMRC. Charities will need to provide each donor’s address, in addition to their name, date of donation and the amount given.
