New tax rules came into effect in 2000 which makes it easier for registered charities to recover Income Tax from members' subscriptions  and donations. The Gift Aid scheme replaces  Deed of Covenant, and provides for a single declaration which lasts indefinately, or until it is revoked by the donor.

If you are a UK taxpayer , by completing the declaration below , the Society can reclaim the tax that you will have paid on all subscriptions and donations (currently 28p in the ), plus all future subscriptions and donations until you wish to cancel the arrangement.
