HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) do not separately identify gift aid claims by countries of the UK.

Amounts of tax repaid to charities in the UK on donations under gift aid are published on the HMRC website at www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/charities/menu.htm. In 2005-06 a total of £750 million was repaid to UK charities under gift aid.
