Gift Aid Tax Recovery is changing.

On 6th April 2011, all charities lost the 'Transitional Relief' that has enabled us to reclaim tax of 28p for very £1 given. This means that the value of your giving will fall by 3p for every £1 of Gift Aid giving.

What can you do?

If you wish the value of your giving to remain the same you will need to consider increasing your standing order or numbered or white envelope giving, by at least 3p for every £1 you give

For instance

Your current giving          New giving

£100.00                            £103.00

£50.00                              £51.50

£25.00                              £25.75

£10.00                              £10.30

Please take action as soon as possible, if you are able, to help are church make up this impending shortfall, which will amount to around £1,700 annually. Thank you.
