Help the BBS with Gift Aid

  • If you live in the UK and pay tax on the income used to pay your subscription, please also complete and submit the gift aid declaration, to allow us to reclaim the tax on your subscription.
  • If you are a professional bryologist etc. and claim your BBS subscription as an allowable expense against your income for income tax purposes, please note that you have not paid tax on the income used to pay your subscription and you must not complete this form. Similarly, if your employer pays your subscription on your behalf you must not complete this form.
