Edinburgh Festival Fringe Gift Aid Declaration
Don’t forget to Gift Aid!
As a charity, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society can claim Gift Aid on behalf of customers and donors who are UK tax payers.
If you agree to Gift Aid your donations, we can reclaim the tax on any qualifying donations made since 05 April 2006 at no extra cost to you. Meaning for every £10.00 you donate, we actually receive £12.50. This makes a huge difference to us.
Please note, you must pay an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that we reclaim on your donations in any single tax year.
To sign the Gift Aid declaration, please fill in and submit the form below. You can cancel this declaration at any time by writing to us at the address provided at the bottom of the form.
You can cancel this declaration at any time by writing to us at Development Team, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, 180 High Street, EH1 1QS. While the declaration is in force, please let us know if you change your name or address. Remember to notify us if you no longer pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax equal to the amount of tax that we reclaim on your donations.
Tax claimed by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society
- The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society will reclaim 28p of tax on every £1 you gave up to 5 April 2008.
- The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 you give on or after 6 April 2008.
- The Government will pay to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society an additional 3p on every £1 you gave between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011. This transitional relief for the Society does not affect your personal tax position.
If you pay Income Tax at the higher rate, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you.
