About Gift Aid
You have the option to have your membership fee (and any donations) to be treated as Gift Aid.
You can do this by selecting ‘Treat this & all donations as Gift Aid’ when completing your online membership application.
By selecting this option you are confirming that you would like this to happen and confirming that you have paid or will pay an amount of 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 Community Sports Clubs that you donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year.
You also confirm that you understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not quality and understand that the Society will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give.
In the case of Joint membership, if you select the option as above the Society will treat donations as split equally between you.
Please contact and notify The Society:
1) If you want to cancel this declaration.
2) If you want to change your name or home address.
3) If you no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and /or capital gains.
If you pay income tax at the higher rate or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
