Streeva is an award-winning fintech startup, that has a strong track record of delivering automated tax solutions through privacy driven methods.

Streeva’s initial solution ‘Swiftaid’ was developed in 2018 in collaboration with The University of Surrey and co-funded by InnovateUK for a £460,000 project. Swiftaid is an API solution that automates the entire Gift Aid process for UK charities, Gift Aid is a UK tax relief that increases charitable donations by 25% at no extra cost to the donor.
Swiftaid was the first solution recognised by HMRC to automate Gift Aid on contactless donations and are now leading technically on an industry-wide project called ‘The Future of Gift Aid’. The biggest names across the sector are collaborating to automate Gift Aid across all donation methods, with the aim to use personal tax accounts to remove liability from individuals.
