Gift Aid

SIMT Membership Scheme qualifies for Gift Aid by paying an extra 10% your donation helps the museum claim tax back on museum income.  There is no obligation to pay the additional donation and visitors paying by either method (standard admission and gift aid admission) will be admitted on the same terms. You must expect in the current tax year to pay an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax the Charity reclaims on your donations. Council Tax and VAT payments do NOT qualify as tax paid in this situation.

Once you have completed the process at the till you need do nothing more. We will reclaim the tax you have already paid. There is no extra cost to you. The information you give will remain confidential and will not be passed to any other organisation than HMRC and will not be used by the SIMT to send promotional material and messages.
