The Society has been granted Gift Aid Status by HM Revenue and Customs. This means that where subscriptions are paid from taxed income, the Society will be able to reclaim the tax.
The society claims back the tax on the central subscription. In addition each branch can claim back tax on that portion of the subscription that goes to the branch. There are guidance notes and a sample registration form.
If you record your branch subscriptions on your membership return, the membership secretary will send you a spreadsheet for claiming gift aid at the end of each financial year. There is guidance on using this spreadsheet.
Further information can be obtained from Eian Massey (giftaidsrporguk)
