The details of pupil's donors if eligible must be entered on the pupil's record within Tali in order for transactions logged against the donors to be included in Gift Aid claims.

Each Account you are crediting with Gift Aid will need to be Gift Aid flagged as well either at the setting up of a new account or amending the account later in Admin>Manage Accounts;
