In 2018 HMRC published research which estimated there was up to £564 million of Gift Aid that was not claimed on eligible donations. This is published on GOV.UK at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/charitable-giving-and-gift-aid-research

HMRC does not make annual estimates of unclaimed eligible gift aid as customers do not supply the necessary administrative information.
