JustGiving and HMRC in agreement over restoring lost Gift Aid on ‘family donations’

HMRC assured it that the crackdown was not limited to online donations or sites that promoted ‘social giving’, but was part of a sector-wide attempt to improve the way Gift Aid was applied.Fortunately, JustGiving and HMRC have now reached an agreement that will result in many of these previously rejected Gift Aid declarations being accepted. JustGiving was able to present HMRC with feedback from donors and charities on why people chose to mention more than one name in their comments.Up to four names of linked family members acceptedA temporary lifting of the family name restriction has now been agreed. This means that JustGiving will now be able to claim Gift Aid on donations that feature comments from up to four names of linked family members.Even better, HRMC is permitting JustGiving to claim Gift Aid retrospectively on all donations from November 2015 to now that comply with this new definition.JustGiving describe this retrospective processing to be “challenging”. It is advising charities to expect the payments to be phased in over several weeks. Any successful retrospective transactions will be flagged up in JustGiving’s reporting to charities.At present it is still working on a clear process, and once it does, charities affected will be notified.In a blog post on the subject, JustGiving’s Head of Partnerships Katherine Scott-Barrett wrote:“Our ambition has always been to ensure that every UK taxpayer entitled to claim Gift Aid on their charitable donation is able to do so, and we will continue to work closely with HMRC to ensure that Gift Aid is applied accurately and fairly, while making the experience as intuitive as possible for donors”.  269 total views,  1 views today Online giving site JustGiving has reached an agreement with HMRC that will see thousands of charities regain Gift Aid income that had been rejected by HMRC because it appeared to come from more than one family member.JustGiving, along with other charities, experienced a sudden rise in rejections of Gift Aid submissions to HMRC towards the end of 2015, the result of more stringent application of regulations. Evidence of ‘family donations’ or ‘social giving’ was taken to indicate that the donation was not made out of taxed paid by one individual, and so did not qualify for Gift Aid.Multiple names triggered Gift Aid rejectionsJustGiving’s site, which encourages donors to leave public messages of support, was found to contain messages such as “with love from Mum and Dad’. These could be taken to indicate that the donation was made jointly and not by an individual tax-payer and therefore would not qualify under Gift Aid. Similarly, posting two names in the message box sender field was interpreted in the same way.Indeed, the giving service was instructed to apply this stricter definition retrospectively, with the result that the Gift Aid element on earlier donations was cancelled, resulting in charities finding that their anticipated income had suddenly dropped.The Daily Mail’s Money section today cites examples of donors who found that their Gift Aid declaration had been removed retrospectively in Shameless HMRC grabbing thousands in charity cash: Why writing ‘love mum and dad’ on donations lets taxman pocket a fat slice.It quotes one donor who donated £300 at Christmas to a hospice that had cared for his son who found his £75 Gift Aid payment had disappeared from the giving page. He said:“Of course I’m going to write my wife’s name on a message to our son. We are his mum and dad. But that shouldn’t mean my donation isn’t eligible for Gift Aid — I was donating my money from my bank account that I’d earned and paid tax on.” Advertisementlast_img read more

The Hidden Agenda Behind The Animal Care Movement

first_img Facebook Twitter Following a allegations by Mercy for Animals, a front group for HSUS, an independent veterinarian, who was taken by law enforcement to the Pipestone Farm facility shown in the video, determined that there were no signs of inhumane treatment or violations of good production standards. Therefore, no charges were filed. The farm did not stop there. They brought in a third party to investigate. The farm’s investigation determined that the employee involved had not been following animal care protocols, and he was immediately fired. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt SHARE Ironically, just a few days after this panel discussion, another undercover video alleging animal mistreatment made the news.  It is getting to be so commonplace that that national news media hardly covers it anymore. The video purported to show mistreatment of hogs on a Minnesota farm. While local media coverage was significant and over-dramatic, very little national coverage occurred. Only the Huffington Post — and I only marginally consider them a news source — picked up the story. There was also something different about this case, the farmer fought back. The Hidden Agenda Behind The Animal Care Movement Home Commentary The Hidden Agenda Behind The Animal Care Movement While the farm had done nothing wrong, its image and reputation have been damaged. But this is perfectly acceptable to groups like HSUS and HEC. During the panel discussion, the HEC attorney said that, even if farmers were not doing anything illegally, they still should be subject to unauthorized public inspection and exposure. Ms. Ferraro stated that, if legal and industry acceptable practices of a farm offended the sensibilities of the public, they should be exposed with undercover investigations. The real agenda behind the animal activist movement is the total domination and, in some cases, elimination of animal agriculture.  These groups are also prepared to fight farmers who try and defend themselves and their industry from these attacks. The anti-videotaping legislation being proposed across the country is an example of this. Farmers are tired of being victims and are not just reacting but being proactive in the fight against those who are committed more to an anti-meat agenda than animal care. This agenda is not limited to the livestock sector, row crop farmers are beginning to face the same battle from biotech and environmental activists.  By Gary Truitt – Nov 3, 2013 Previous articleRecruiting Pork Producers of Tomorrow at National FFA ConventionNext articleCLA Says Report Shows Need to Fix Pesticide Regulatory Process Gary Truitt A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion hosted by FarmWorld. The topic was legislation that prevents the videotaping and photographing of farming operations without the farmer’s knowledge or permission.  Also on the panel were representatives of the print media, Indiana Farm Bureau, and Kim E. Ferraro, Staff Attorney and Director of Agricultural and Water Policy with the Hoosier Environmental Council. While the discussion was spirited, for the most part it traversed some well-traveled ground on this issue, much of which I have written about in previous columns. There were, however, some interesting insights gleaned from the statements made by HEC that provide a glimpse into the agenda behind its animal care facade. SHARE This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to uncovering the agenda behind the animal activist movement. Later in the panel discussion, HEC attacked Farm Bureau on their support of laws that protect farmers from frivolous lawsuits. The National Pork Producers Council asserts that the Pipestone case came in response to HSUS losing a court battle with NPPC over the pork logo, ” HSUS has spent significant amounts of its donors’ money on futile legislative efforts and on a lawsuit that had nothing to do with animal welfare which was dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge.”last_img read more

USDA Still Has Over $2 Billion to Invest in Rural America

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The U.S. Department of Agriculture has more than $2 billion available this year to invest in community facilities and infrastructure projects in rural areas. “Modern and accessible education, health care, public safety, and municipal services are the foundation for a high quality of life,” says Acting Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Joel Baxley. “The USDA is committed to be a strong partner for rural communities to build the facilities they need for their essential services, as well as improve the infrastructure those services rely on to operate in rural America.” USDA is already making those kinds of investments in rural communities across the country and has additional funding available through the Community Facilities Direct Loan Program.More than 100 types of projects are eligible for funding under the USDA’s Community Facilities Program. Eligible applicants include municipalities, public bodies, nonprofit organizations, and federally-recognized Native American tribes. Congress appropriated $2.8 billion for the Community Facilities direct loans and grants in the fiscal year 2019.

Judicial harassment of war crimes reporter continues

Zeljko Peratovic is accused of “disseminating information likely to upset the population” under article 322/1 KZA of the criminal code, which carries a maximum sentence of a year in prison as well as a possible fine.In blog entries (peratovic.net and peratovic.blog.hr), letters to national judicial officials and a series of public statements, Peratovic has accused the interior minister of obstructing the investigation into the death of Milan Levar, a witness under the protection of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), who was killed by a car bomb in the southeastern village of Gospic in August 2000.Peratovic was questioned as a witness in the course of the investigation because he was one of the last people to see Levar alive. The prosecutor in charge of the investigation subsequently identified Peratovic as a witness, in violation of judicial confidentiality.“Interior minister Karamarko portrays himself as the victim of defamation and claims that I want to upset the population, but he is pursuing a different objective” Peratovic said. “As well as fining me, the court could above all decide to ban me from disseminating information for an indefinite period. That would prevent be from undertaking any kind of journalistic activity, on my blog or in other media.”Peratovic added: “It would also prevent me from continuing my effort to discover who was behind Milan Levar’s murder. Some people are counting on the statute of limitations eventually applying to this case. Silencing me could be a way of achieving this.”Reporters Without Borders said: “It seems that press investigations into war crimes are not welcome at a time when Croatia is trying to join the European Union. The interior minister should be trying to help the investigation into a protected witness’s murder rather than attacking those who refuse to let war crimes be forgotten and go unpunished.”“The prosecution being brought against Peratovic under article 322/1 is ridiculous and unacceptable,” the press freedom organisation continued. “The crime of ‘information likely to upset the population’ reflects on obsolete view of freedom of expression that is incompatible with the European democratic standards that Croatia will have to conform to if it wants to join the EU.”Reporters Without Borders added: “If the prosecution of Peratovic goes ahead, we insist that whenever any of the parties are questioned in court, it no longer takes place behind closed doors.”Zeljko Peratovic, who received death threats in 2008 in the form of comments added to his blog, was arrested at his home on 17 October 2007 on a charge of revealing state secret for posting documents on his blog relating to war crimes in Gospic in the 1990s, and for referring to the existence of a video of witness accusing former defence minister Gojko Susak (now deceased) and a parliamentary deputy president of involvement. Aged 42, he faced a possible three-year prison sentence. In the event, the prosecution was not pursued but the charges have not been withdrawn and the files confiscated by the police have still not been returned to him.Peratovic has worked for various newspapers, the latest of which is Vjesnik. His investigations into war crimes have earned him a lot of trouble. He has been fired, he has been physically attacked and he is regarded as a traitor by many of his compatriots, who refuse outright to consider the possibility that Croatians may have committed war crimes.He received the received the press freedom prize of the Reporters Without Borders Austrian section in 2003.
