Gift Aid is a government scheme which enables charities to claim and extra 25p for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to the donor.
In order for your kind donations to be eligible for Gift Aid, you must be a UK tax payer and you must pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that you donate will reclaim on your gifts for that tax year.
When you make a Gift Aid Declaration all donations you have made to Bristol Aero Collection Trust (BACT) in the last four years, and all donations you make from the date of your declaration until you notify BACT otherwise, are treated as Gift Aid donations.
Please notify our Fundraising Team if you:
wish to cancel this declaration
change your name or home address
no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
Declaration: I confirm that I am a UK taxpayer and I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each year that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CACS) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year, or I will pay the difference. If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code. Funds raised, after allowing for Fundraising Department expenses, will be applied to the BACT projects and objectives. If an identified objective cannot be met, the net income will be applied to similar projects or objectives, as will any surplus.
