Gift Aid is good news for the Church:
- It increases our giving by 25 per cent.
- No minimum contribution is required.
- No particular amount has to be promised.
- There is no fixed term during which contributions must be made.
- Tax may be recovered retrospectively.
All that is required is that the donor must pay UK income tax or capital gains tax, at any rate, at least equal to the amount of tax being reclaimed, and give their offering or donation through offering envelopes or by bank standing order or by cheque to establish the necessary audit trail.
Donors must also sign a Gift Aid declaration form, which gives the name of the congregation (or ‘The Church of Scotland’ if it is a donation through the General Treasurer) and the donor’s name and address (including postcode). The donor signs and dates the form under these words:
"I want the congregation (or 'The Church of Scotland') to treat all donations I have made for the four years prior to this year, and all donations I make from the date of this declaration, until I notify you otherwise, as Gift Aid donations."
A gift to the Church in your Will
The work of the Church has been assisted greatly by many generous gifts in the Wills of members, adherents and supporters. If you wish to make a gift in your Will to support the work of the Church, it can support your local congregation or the work of a particular council or the work of the Church of Scotland in general. A gift to the Church in your Will is exempt from Inheritance Tax. The General Treasurer and the Solicitor of the Church are always willing to provide information about the work of the Church to anyone interested in making a gift in their Will.
