Gift Aid – Declaration forms now available online!

Press Releases

Added on 17/09/2012

For many years, the RCB has offered a service to parishes across Northern Ireland to assist in the preparation and submission of Gift Aid claims to HM Revenue & Customs.

We can continue to do this for your parish even if you are separately registered as a charity.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Charities has updated the guidance on Gift Aid declarations for new donors and the RCB has created new model declarations toreflect these recent guidelines.The new declarations are available for download from:

Alternatively, please contact this office and we will send you the required number offorms.

Some parishes prefer to use their own tailor–made declaration or envelopes. These will also need to be updated to reflect the new regulations. There is a checklist of the minimum information that must be included in a declaration on the back page of the September 2012 newsletter (please click here). If, after looking at the checklist, parishes find their declarations/envelopes need to change, they need to make these changes as soon as possible.
The old style declarations will not be accepted after 31 December 2012.

Where we have already received a Gift Aid declaration including the old wording itwill not be necessary to ask the donor to supply a new declaration.

The new declarations apply to new donors only!
