Gift Aid Declaration

Dear Supporter

Gift Aid is an easy way to make your membership and donations worth even more to us.

We can reclaim the basic rate tax, currently 20%, from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) that you have paid on the gross equivalent of your donations. This means that for every £1 donated, we can claim an extra 25 pence.

So, for example, your membership payment of £23 is worth £28.75 to us, at no extra cost to yourself.

We can claim this for your current donation/membership payment, plus any paid in the last four years, and any paid in the future. To allow us to do this, please confirm by clicking the button below, this will add a zero-priced item to your membership purchase/renewal (you must have paid sufficient Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the respective periods, as detailed in the Declaration). Alternatively you can complete the paper version by downloading the PDF version here and send to:

Bob Dawson (BAS Membership), Flat 4, Normandy House, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly TR21 0NY

Thank you for your support
