Please note that GiftAid applies to UK Taxpayers only
You may be aware that measures to encourage UK taxpayers to increase their financial support for charities like the East Yorkshire Family History Society were introduced on 6th April 2000. Hence, as a UK taxpayer, your subscription qualifies as Gift Aid. the paperwork is VERY SIMPLE; you make a single GiftAid Declaration and that is all there is to it.
To allow the Society to reclaim tax paid on your subscription, at no charge to yourself, simply complete and submit our GiftAid Form and help us to keep the subscription rates as low as possible for as long as possible. You can send your form back electronically or by post, we don't mind, but please send one back today before you forget.
You do not have to be working for us to claim GiftAid. Any UK tax-payer, retired, employed, unemployed; whatever your circumstances - the chances are you will be paying some form of income tax. Most UK benefits are taxable, as are savings accounts and investments.
