How will I be able to tell if a USA Charity I donated to is a permissable charity for UK tax relief ? (tax relief on donation is not claimed in any other way, paid by UK citizen not paying tax anywhere else but UK ). It is a 501.c.3 charity. Thank you.

Hi,

You will only be able to claim gift aid for charities based in the UK, EU, Iceland or Norway which are registered and recognised by HMRC.  

If a charity is not recognised by HMRC, the charity can not claim the tax back and gift aid relief is therefore not available.  You can see guidance here:

Charities and tax

Claiming Gift Aid as a charity or CASC                                                    

HMRC does not publish a list of oversees charities recognised for gift aid.  

You may wish to direct your enquiry to the Charities Commission.

Thank you.
