What We Do

Gift Aid

Dear Parent / Guardian,

GIFT AID DONATIONS

Following changes in the Finance Act 2002 it is now possible for us to reclaim the tax paid by you on Scout group subscriptions and we would like to take advantage of this.

Any person who is a UK resident and pays Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax can complete a Gift Aid Declaration and we are then able to reclaim the tax you have already paid with out it costing you anything. If your current subscriptions are £ 31 per term we are able to claim an additional £ 8.68, or £ 26.04 for each year. We are able to back claim from 6th April 2000 so this should enable us to claim a substantial amount if all eligible parents are willing to complete the enclosed declaration.

If you pay tax at less than the standard rate we are still able to claim the tax back provided that you have paid in excess of the amount claimed (i.e. currently £26.04) per tax year.

You need only make one declaration, regardless of how many children you have attending the group. You will not need to take any further action following signing the document except if you need to notify us of changes to the details on the declaration.

If you are a higher rate tax payer you can claim the difference within the tax relief on your self assessment form as we are only able to reclaim tax at the standard rate.
