Gift Aid can generate further valued income for each Brigade unit from donations.
We have recently discovered that the submission period for Gift Aid has altered. We can now only claim four years in retrospect.
HMRC have sent a table of submission dates and you will see the vast difference in the time scale. You will note that the claim has to be with HMRC no later than four years after the relevant tax year end.
