Standing Order Instruction
Payment by a Standing Order Instruction is, by far, the most convenient method of payment: you retain control and do not have to remember when your subscription is due for renewal. However, to prevent possible rejection of the Standing Order by your Bank or Building Society, it is important to ensure that you initial any amendments or corrections that you make on the form. The date of the first payment should be the date on which you want your membership to commence. The second date should be 1st January of the next year: ie year one should be 01/01/2019 and the next payment should be 01/01/2020.
If you bank online and intend to set up a Standing Order Instruction electronically, you are requested to contact the Membership Secretary by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your CBWPS Membership Number before submitting to your bank.
Gift Aid Declaration
If you pay income tax in the UK, we strongly urge you to complete a Declaration in favour of the Society. Gift Aid is an important source of revenue for us and really does cost you nothing and you don’t necessarily have to be working to be paying tax. Income can include, for example interest on savings, State and/or other pensions, investment or rental income or Capital Tax on Gains. However, you must pay at least as much as the Society will reclaim. With current tax rates at 20%, this means that the amount the society receives will be 25% in every pound; this amounts to £2.50 for every £10 (or £25 for every £100) that you give to the Society.
