Gift Aid

As The Gallipoli Association became a registered charity on 3 February 2014, we have applied successfully to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to be registered for Gift Aid. This means that for every £1.00 you pay to The Gallipoli Association, we can reclaim 25 pence back from HMRC. This costs nothing for our members but provides additional income for The Gallipoli Association.

The Gallipoli Association is eligible to reclaim these amounts from HMRC if:

1. An Association member pays UK tax equal to or greater than the amount The Gallipoli Association can claim. For example, for an annual subscription of £25.00, the Gallipoli Association can reclaim £6.25 from HMRC provided the member pays at least £6.25 income or capital gains tax to HMRC. If you donate or subscribe to other charities, please bear in mind that they also may be registered for Gift Aid and therefore, your tax paid to HMRC must be greater than the Gift Aid amounts that those charities can reclaim in total from HMRC.

2. The Gallipoli Association holds an authorised declaration from that member.

If you are a UK tax payer and Note 1 above applies to you, we would appreciate your completion of a Gift Aid Declaration form. Once completed, please send to:

Membership Secretary, Mr Peter Luff,

The Gallipoli Association

19 Old Exeter Road

Tavistock

Devon

PL19 0JE

UK
