10 Income – Gift Aid St Columba's Accounts 2013

11 Income – Gift Aid Gift Aid allows St Columba’s to reclaim from HMRC a further 25% on offerings made under Gift Aid To make donations under Gift Aid you have to sign a Gift Aid Declaration and have paid enough Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax to cover the total that all charities and community amateur sports clubs will reclaim in that tax year in respect of your donations. The rules on Gift Aid declarations have been slightly amended and the wording on envelopes etc. changed to conform. St Columba's Accounts 2013

12 Income – Gift Aid Declaration St Columba’s Church of Scotland – Gift Aid Declaration I, (title and full name) of (full address including postcode) declare that I wish all my donations to St Columba’s Church of Scotland (registered charity ) made in the last four years and until further notice to be treated as given under Gift Aid. I am a UK taxpayer and acknowledge that my UK Income and Capital Gains Tax in any tax year in which I make a donation to St Columba’s must equal or exceed the tax that St Columba’s and other charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs recover from my donations. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I also understand that at current tax rates St Columba’s will reclaim 25p on every £1 that I donate. Signed Date Please come and discuss any specific questions on Gift Aid further after this meeting (or indeed at any time) St Columba's Accounts 2013

13 Income – Gift Aid Update We are taking advantage of the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS). This lets us claim top-up payments on donations of £20 or less without obtaining Gift Aid declarations, so long as every £10 of GASDS donations is “matched” with £1 of Gift Aid donations in that year. We are reclaiming GASDS at an annual rate of £1,250, which is the maximum permitted (25% of £5,000). We hope to reclaim Gift Aid on magazine subscriptions but will inform subscribers before doing so.
