Gift Aid

As a Registered Charity under UK law, MHCS may reclaim the tax you have already paid on your membership and any other donations under the Gift Aid Scheme. You can help MHCS increase its funds by signing the Gift Aid Declaration, but only if you are a UK tax payer and will pay tax in the year you have paid your subscription etc. Click here for a copy of the Gift Aid Declaration to download and complete.


How Gift Aid works:

Full membership of MHCS is £85 per year. If you pay tax on any income, be it salary, investments, pension or other income, MHCS can claim back from HM Revenue & Customs an additional £21.25 at no cost to you. This is because we can claim back the income tax you have already paid to HMRC on the amount you pay to MHCS.


Each year we send a list of names and addresses and the amounts paid by members to HMRC. Once processed by HMRC we are sent a cheque for what we have claimed. This money is then used to further the aims of the Choral Society.
