Venue in Sandwich Deanery TBC
Gift Aid Secretaries are required to attend compliance checks for gift aid procedures at least once every three years. These are held around the diocese throughout the year.
Prior to 2018 the Diocesan Accounts team visited every parish to carry out compliance checks for gift aid procedures however from 2018 onwards we are carrying out these checks in locations around the diocese to enable more than one Gift Aid Secretary to attend at one time. There are 30 events around the diocese running over a 12 month period and are on a variety of days and times. There are two in every deanery so you shouldn’t have to travel far – please attend whichever of the 30 which is most convenient for you.
Please book on to attend this event below.
A week or so before your event, we will contact you and specify which recent claim of yours we want to look at. You will then need to bring the paperwork relating to that claim. If you have essential data stored electronically that is impractical to print then please email a copy to us. Examples of the paperwork we need are:
- Bank statements
- Weekly counting sheets
- Freewill offering envelopes
- Any other documents used in preparing the specified claim
The plan for each event is to do the necessary specific checks and to share best practices. How exactly this will work out will depend on the number attending and will develop over time.
There will be tea and coffee provided.
