Charity Short Codes

VAT exempt SMS short code

Charity Short Codes are a new range of approved short codes designed to identify VAT (apportioned within a donation) and associate it to a charitable cause.

A dedicated UK short code range of 70000 to 70999 has been set aside by the mobile network operators for SMS donations. Charities can now rent a code from this range to distinguish a premium micro-payment (the gift) as a charity SMS donation.

Using a charitable short code identifies and passes on the VAT content of a mobile donation.

A SMS donation will lead to a charge on a donor’s mobile phone bill, or will debit from available funds on a pay-as-you-go mobile phone. In accordance with your terms and conditions of your mobile donation campaign we can facilitate a single or recurring SMS donation.
