Do you know how important Gift Aid is?
A gift to the Leavers Coulson Trust can be increased if you are a tax payer. We can claim back the income tax you have paid on your donation. This is called a Gift Aid donation, and you’ll need to complete a Gift Aid declaration.
At the current basic tax rate of 20%:
- a monthly gift of £10 made by standing order will be increased to £150 per annum;
- a single gift of £100 would be increased to £125.
For every pound you give, the government increases it by 25 pence at no extra cost to you.
If you are a higher rate tax payer the extra over and above the 25% that we claim can be claimed by you.
To make your gift tax effective, a declaration must be made by you to the Leavers Coulson Trust that your gift(s) is (are) to be treated as a Gift Aid gift, and that you pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax in the relevant tax year that is at least equal to any tax that is reclaimed by all the charities you donate to. We also need to have your name and address.
So, if you pay tax, please fill in the form and return it to us. Many thanks!
If you have any queries about the declaration, do not hesitate to contact our administrator.
