Anyone who pays UK income tax or capital gains tax, at least equal to the total of their annual Gift Aid payments in the appropriate tax year or years, is able to agree for any subscription or donation to The Military Historical Society (registered charity number 289326) to be treated for Gift Aid.
Members who meet these criteria are therefore encouraged to agree for their subscriptions and donations to be treated for Gift Aid as this is a significant help to the Society and enables the subscriptions to be maintained at an economic level. This can be done by:
- Ticking the box on the Annual Membership Renewal Form
- Ticking the box on the Membership Application Form.
- Ticking the box on the My Account page on this website (under the Hello tab)
- Emailing: email@example.com with a simple message such as: "I agree to Gift Aid"
- Telephoning the Treasurer on 01625 574908
Gift Aid Notes
Any subscriptions or donations made during the past four years and in all subsequent years will be included.
The declaration will remain in force until cancelled by unticking the box on the My Account page on the website or by informing the Membership Secretary / Treasurer by email, telephone or in writing.
The declaration must be cancelled if the Member no longer pays sufficient UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax.
Any change of address should be notified by amending the My Account page on the website or by informing the Membership Secretary / Treasurer.
Members who pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate can also reclaim the additional tax relief due to them by including all Gift Aid donations on their Self-Assessment tax return or by asking HMRC to adjust their tax code.
