I am writing to remind everyone who has signed a gift aid mandate in the past that they must be paying tax to take part in the Gift Aid scheme and that they should let me know if they no longer pay tax, (increases in personal allowances may have put some people out of the tax bracket). Whilst I am all for encouraging getting tax back from the government I do not want anyone to get into trouble with the Inland Revenue.
On the subject of the Gift Aid Scheme please can I ask that envelopes for individual payments are filled out properly or I cannot claim the tax back on their donations (as I don’t have everyone’s addresses I cannot fill this in for them), if you just want to use the envelopes for a donation then please just cross out the gift aid form on the back.
If making a donation by cheque then please could you make it out to ‘Raughton Head PCC’ as this is the name of the Church account, there are several All Saints Churches in north Cumbria and the bank likes things to be clear!
If anyone would like to make regular donations by standing order direct from their bank then please let me know and I will give them a form to enable this. My telephone number is 016974 76463 and email is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Finally I would like to remind everyone that private financial information is just that, PRIVATE and I will not discuss it with anyone else, not even PCC members. I will also keep written information stored securely.
Thank you to everyone who supports the Church, whether it is financially or in other ways, they are all important.
Kay Robinson (PCC Treasurer)
