I'm just setting up the 3.0 beta Gift aid extension (https://github.com/compucorp/uk.co.compucorp.civicrm.giftaid and https://civicrm.org/extensions/gift-aid-extension-uk), as provided by Compucorp (and for which many thanks) for CiviCRM 4.6.
However I'm a tad confused, because there's also the Gift Aid Online Submission extension from Veda Consulting (https://civicrm.org/extensions/uk-hmrc-online-gift-aid-submission). Studying the available documentation, neither extension appears to reference or make mention in any way of the other. I've a vague memory from CiviCon London a few years back that the online submission extension builds on the Compucorp extension by enabling straightforward submission direct to HMRC, but I'm not clear. Can anyone cast any light?
If I can get some clarity, through my own experience and that of other folks that have gone through this I'll be happy to write it up in a way that might be helpful to other users.
