I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less income or capital gains tax for each tax year than the amount of the Gift Aid claimed on my donations, it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I will inform SOS if (a) I cease to pay sufficient tax as defined above, (b) I change my name or home address, and/or (c) I wish to cancel this declaration.' I agree to contribute Gift Aid on my membership subscription subject to the requirements of the Declaration given above.(required)
