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.
The Gift Aid Form is available for download HERE. You should keep the original form and make a scan or picture of the form for the membership database. You can load this scan yourself if you edit your membership on-line, or email it to the membership secretary with your membership spreadsheet if not. If you can’t make a scan or picture, then send a paper copy to the membership secretary who will upload it for you.
Further information can be obtained from the Gift Aid Administrator (giftaidsrporguk)
