Gift Aid is a tax effective way of giving to the Scout Group if you are a taxpayer. The subscriptions that you pay from your taxed income enable us, because of our charity status, to claim back the tax you have paid. Thus for every £120 of subscriptions we can claim back £25.00 from the taxman. A very appealing idea as you can imagine.
In order for us to claim tax back a Gift Aid declaration is required. This simply declares that you wish your subscriptions to be treated as Gift Aid payments. One declaration will cover all the payments you ever make to the Scout Group and no personal tax information is required. Once the declaration is signed you can sit back and we can claim back money for the Group from the comfort of our armchair. You will only need to inform us of any change in your address or if you stop paying tax.
