Gift Aid it

May we encourage all who pay Income or Capital Gains Tax in the UK to complete the Gift Aid declaration?

HM Revenue & Customs enables Charities, like us, and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) to register subscriptions as a donation for Gift Aid purposes. By this means we can claim back the tax paid by UK taxpayers on their subscription, making it worth an extra 25p for every £1 paid to the Society.

You must pay an amount of UK Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the Charities or CASCs that you donate to will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.

Please notify us if you:

  1. Want to cancel the declaration
  2. Change your name or home address
  3. No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and / or capital gains.
