Gift Aid Please treat all gifts of money that I have made and may make in the future as Gift Aid donations
You must pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax in each tax year at least equal to the tax that the BNYA will claim from HM Revenue & Customs on your Gift Aid donation(s)

Do please gift aid your subscription since that will enable us to increase resources through the tax benefits. Please then notify the British National Yachting Archive if you:

  • Want to cancel the declaration.
  • Change your name or home address.
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

Tax claimed by the British National Yachting Archive:

  • The British National Yachting Archive will reclaim 25p of tax on every 1 you give on or after 6 April 2008.
  • The Government will pay to the British National Yachting Archive an additional 3p on every 1 you give between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011. This transitional relief for the British National Yachting Archive does not affect your personal tax position.

If you pay income tax at the higher rate, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you.
