Are you a UK Tax Payer – if yes please read on.
IF YOU GIVE TO THE CHURCH- GIFT AID IT
Gift Aid is an easy way to increase the donations that you are giving to the Parish by 25% without actually giving anything extra. If you are a UK taxpayer, the scheme enables that for every pound that you give, the Parish will get back an additional 25p from the Inland Revenue.
WHAT IS NEEDED FOR THIS REFUND TO BE OBTAINED?
You must be a UK taxpayer and pay an amount of income tax at least equal to the amount of any refund reclaimed by the Parish on your donations.
You must complete a Gift Aid Declaration.
Your contributions must be identified as coming from you.
HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?
You can make your contributions Weekly Numbered Envelopes (supplied by the Parish), Standing Order or by cheque.
If you stop paying income tax or wish to exit from the scheme the Declaration can be cancelled immediately. You are not committed to paying any fixed amount.
