Gift Aided donations and subscriptions paid to BANA give a great opportunity to increase fundraising at no extra cost to the donor. Gift Aided donations are increased by 25% of the total sum if the donor is a UK Tax Payer, whose tax contributions for the tax year is equivalent to or more than the amount of Gift Aid that can be reclaimed on the amount donated that year. For example, if you make a donation of £20, you must pay at least £5 in tax that same tax year.
In order for us to claim Gift Aid from your contributions, please agree to the following statement before proceeding to complete your membership:
I confirm that I am a UK tax payer and I want the charity to treat all subscriptions and donations I make today and in future, until I notify you otherwise, as Gift Aid donations.
I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p on tax on every £1 I give.
Please note: Gift Aid cannot be claimed if someone else pays on your behalf.
Please notify the charity if you:
If you pay income tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment Tax return, or ask HMRC to adjust your tax code.
