If you use internet banking you can set up a standing order online using the Coign Church account details available here. Please ensure that when your donation arrives in the Coign account it is easily identifiable as coming from you, it is suggested that you enter your initials and surname
If you are completing the Standing order form off line:
Please enter the name of your bank and their address
Please enter the initial sum and date to be paid
Please enter the subsequent amount to be paid and the day for the payment
Please complete the Under reference with your initial and Surname
Please complete your account details with the account number and name
Sign and date the form
Post the completed form to your bank.
The item on the form “under reference” needs to be completed so that when your donation arrives in the Coign account it is easily identifiable as coming from you, it is suggested that you enter your initials and surname.
Giving by Standing Order is a method encouraged by the church trustees and leaders
Giving by Standing Order gives a degree of certainty of future income thus aiding helpful forward planning.
Gifts made jointly by people living together
Spouses and people living at the same address can make a joint declaration, in effect making two or more Gift Aid declarations on the same form but please see “In Practice” below. The declaration must include the full name and address of each person. Joint payments should be split equally between the donors unless both parties tell the charity how they want their payments to be split. They should also keep this information for their own tax records.
Please do not fill out joint declarations, but complete a declaration each. If you give using one cheque or Standing Order amount then you will need to let the gift aid secretary know what proportion each of you is giving if not 50-50.
If one party stops paying tax for any reason you will need to let the church know otherwise any gift made will continue to be split according to the proportion you have advised. This could lead to insufficient tax being paid for the amount of tax being claimed by the party concerned.
