Bates Wells Braithwaite solicitors email Briefing this week reports that
Churches with stocks of pre-printed collection envelopes have successfully lobbied HMRC to be allowed to use up existing stock post April 2016 when new Gift Aid declaration wording must be used. BWB’s Bill Lewis comments “Any charities or CASCs likely to be in a similar situation with stock not used up by April next year should consider asking HMRC for a similar concession.”
