Gift Aid Declaration

The Gift Aid Scheme for UK Taxpayers

In the March 2000 budget the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer said that he wanted to make it easier for people to give to charities more effectively.     He therefore introduced measures to enhance the Gift Aid Scheme, (which in the past was only for single donations of over £250),   so that it could cover donations of any value made by a UK taxpayer, whether single donations or regular contributions.  
As a result the Covenant Scheme will no longer be needed.   
Existing covenants can continue to completion but there will be no new Covenants.     
The Gift Aid Scheme will take their place.

The main change to the Gift Aid Scheme is to remove the necessity for witnessed signatures on legal documents before a donation is made.     All that is required is that you complete a simple Gift Aid Declaration form, (see below)  you can even do it after making a donation,    giving the relevant details and permission for the Church to reclaim the tax you have paid on the donation you give.       The tax can have been paid either as income tax or capital gains tax.

If are a regular contributor using Weekly Free Will Offering Envelopes, and you are a taxpayer, then you can complete a Declaration and the Church will be able to recover the tax you paid on your contributions.          
We also have envelopes at the  Church door with a declaration printed on them.             
You can use these to make a quick one off donation, or put a donation in the open plate during a service.               
The Church will then be able to recover the tax you have paid on your donation.           
You don't even need to complete a whole form.

Gift Aid Declaration forms- below

Attached to the forms, as well as some notes that you should read, you will find a Standing Order mandate for the use of people who want to make regular contributions from their bank account.

You can send completed forms to the  The Minister - Rev John Povey, 19 Maryfield Park, Mid Calder, EH53 0SB, Tel and Fax 01506 882495 e-mail , who will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the Gift Aid Scheme.

If you are a UK taxpayer and would like to make a single donation to Kirk of Calder and wish the Church to be able to recover the tax that you have paid on your donation then send  your donation to Peter Weir (Treasurer - address above), and  include the following declaration* :-:
