Dear HMRC I have made a number of donations to registered dog rescue charities abroad in the USA, India and Philippines. I noticed self assessment mentions Gift aid donations, but as my donations where to charities abroad I assume it is treated differently to UK donations via Gift aid. Could you please clarify whether I can claim my donations as an allowable deduction on my Self assessment?

Hi PokemonGreats,
Gift aid tax relief is only available for donations to UK charities or community amateur sports clubs (CASCs).
Any donations to charities abroad do not qualify for relief.
Please have a look here:

Thank you.
