The Institute of Fundraising is reminding charities that 2006 is the first year in which they will be affected by the time limits for making Gift Aid tax claims.Currently charities can claim tax back on any donation from 6 April 2000 onwards made by a UK taxpayer who has completed a Gift Aid declaration. Time limits for these retrospective claims come into play this year. Charities that are registered companies must make a Gift Aid tax claim within six years from the end of the accounting period to which the claim relates.

The Institute gives an example: “if a charity which is a company for tax purposes, wishes to claim for Gift Aid donations made during its financial year ended 31 December 2000, it must do so by 31 December 2006 at the latest.”Charities which are classified as trusts for tax purposes must make any claim within five years of 31 January in the year following the end of the tax year to which the claim relates.Again, the Institute offers an example: “for Gift Aid donations made during the year ended 5 April 2001, a charity which is a trust for tax purposes has until 31 January 2007 at the latest to make a claim.”In other words, any charity that has outstanding Gift Aid tax claims for donations made in the fiscal year ended 2000/01 should make those claims promptly.In addition, given these time limits, charities might need to consider the wording on their Gift Aid declaration forms, many of which refer to the ability to reclaim tax back to 2000.Megan Pacey, Director of Policy & Campaigns, at the Institute of Fundraising, said: “This is the first time that Gift Aid time limits will impact UK charities and we are urging all fundraisers to ensure that they don’t miss the boat. It is important that any charity with outdated Gift Aid tax claims actions them within the specified time limits to ensure that the charity benefits from the generosity of the Exchequer.”Of course, this change offers a useful opportunity to get back in touch with supporters who have not yet signed up to Gift Aid.The Institute has published a free information sheet “Did you Know Time Limits for Making Gift Aid Claims” which can be downloaded from its website.

Many issues are off-limits, so that the party line is not challenged. They include the property market, rising prices, corruption, the demolition of housing and compulsory relocation, residence permits, the absence of social security, inadequate transport during the Chinese New Year and popular discontent that finds expression in anti-government demonstrations.The media are forbidden to talk of major criminal affairs, now ranked according to four levels of seriousness. Quotas have been set for the publication of articles dealing with natural disasters or major accidents.In these last two cases, the department also proposes limiting the amount of information made available by banning regional news outlets from exchanging information and journalists from answering questions from foreigners.Reporters Without Borders is shocked by these directives, which demonstrate the scale of the Chinese Communist Party’s attempts to control information and impose censorship inside the country. Unfortunately this is standard practice.For example, the Propaganda Department sent explicit instructions to news outlets in May 2010 during the Shanghai World Expo on the handling of news. These orders, which amounted to an editorial straitjacket, were a further insult to the right of citizens to be informed and a further attempt to intimate journalists.Reporters Without Borders is also worried by the effect of these directives on defenders of free speech, who will find themselves prevented from exchanging information and sending each other news items. The directives are aimed at breaking up the networks of dissidents, human rights activists and committed citizen journalists that have grown up over the years.

Not all Valentine’s Day stories are about two hearts intertwined by love. This is a love story between our community and one half a world away. It does not involve paper hearts, chocolate or flowers. It is about the race to save the lives of infants and children who need surgeries to repair congenital heart defects. This is a story about the love, compassion and humanity shown by so many Pasadena Rotarians towards those who need one’s help to live.Through a unique grant process, Rotarians in the community have found a way to deliver a Valentine’s Day gift of life for only $88.00. They have made it possible for everyone to consider deferring that prix fix Valentine’s Day dinner out, that overpriced bouquet of flowers or box of heart-shaped candies to fund surgeries to repair damaged hearts of children who cannot afford the immediate medical care they so desperately need.According to the recent statistics, in India every hour about 20 children are born with heart defects and about 5% of those children die within a month due to lack of proper treatment. Recent data suggest that nearly 12,000 children with heart defects are waiting for surgery in Tamil Nadu, India (DHS Data 2016.)In 2017, Rotary Club of Pasadena put together a program called “Caring Little Hearts” and raised $19,000 in five minutes at one of their meetings! This together with funds from Madras South Rotary Club and Rotary International Foundation, the Ford Foundation in Chennai, India and others made the first 225 heart surgeries possible.Now Pasadena Rotary is asking our community to help fund 200 or more surgeries and has raised over $10,000 toward the goal of $23,500. This will enable Pasadena Rotary and Madras South Rotary Clubs to again seek a Global Grant from Rotary International Foundation.To save the life of a child and give that child a chance for a future is priceless! Make that special Valentine’s Day gift this year by not just buying a paper heart. A donation of only $88.00 made to www.caringlittlehearts.com will mend a heart a half a world away. Can you think of a better gift for that modest cost?The Pasadena Rotary Club has over 200 members that meet weekly at the University Club of Pasadena dedicated to contributing to the well-being and growth of the community, region, and world. Initiatives include Happy Feet (providing shoes at the start of a school year for PUSD elementary school students); Adopt-A-School; Dan Stove Music Contest; 4-way Speech Contest; Community Grants; Done In A Day; Toy Drive; RYLA -Teen Leadership; Project Corazon Super Build; and Teachers of Excellence to name a few.

Local News Twitter Facebook Postcard-sized jury summons coming soon TAGS WhatsApp Twitter Jury summons 2.jpg Beginning in mid-March, Ector County residents summoned for jury duty will notice the physical jury summons has a new look. Ector County officials unveiled that the county will shrink down the mailed summons to a single postcard following legislation that went into effect September 2017. Ector County District Clerk Clarissa Webster said the Texas legislature updated the law that required information such as jury qualifications and the accompanying questionnaire be provided in printed form. She said the current summons is two pages front and back. “The legislature has updated that trying to take everybody into a process that utilizes the technology that is available to us in this century,” Webster said. “They’ve updated the law to say we now recognize that up to and even greater than 98 percent of the population has access to the internet.” Webster said the process as a whole remains largely unchanged and jurors will still show up to the courthouse with their jury summons. “The only difference is before they get here, instead of filling out the questionnaire and turning it in at the door they’ll have responded to the questionnaire online,” Webster said. “It will be a digital response as to a paper response unless they don’t have access to the internet.” Residents that are unable to access the online questionnaire can still serve as a juror and will be required to submit the paperwork in person when they report for jury service. Webster said the existing summons will stay in place for March panels as the county depletes the remaining jury summons stock. Beginning around March 15, residents can start looking for postcards instead. “This is a very exciting time for Ector County,” Webster said. District Attorney Bobby Bland said the update could add efficiency to the process and reduce wait times for jurors. He said scanning information from the barcode on the postcard might allow them to process jurors quicker. County Commissioners on Tuesday approved spending $17,254 to modernize the jury summons service process, down from about $31,390 that was spent last year. Ector County Assistant Purchasing Agent Lucy Soto said three bids were received, but it came down to QuestMark Information Management out of Houston and a company based in New York. Soto said QuestMark came in with the lowest price and was awarded the bid by commissioners. Webster said the switch will result in a 45 percent savings by simplifying the summons and cutting down on postage. Soto said that the amount saved allows more funds to return to the general budget. Webster said delaying implementation of the new summons was intentionally chosen to lower some possible confusion. “We didn’t want to be the first county to go live with just postcards for jury summons so we waited to see a couple of other counties do it successfully,” Webster said. “The counties that we have talked to have all had increased attendance instead of decreased, and we have already started using our online responses and more than half of our panels are already responding online.” Bland said it is in the best interest of justice to have a high response rate. “The jury system only works if the public participates and is involved,” he said, and “the more jurors the better.” Facebook Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Previous article020719_Bookworms_09Next articleOHS-MHS Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest WhatsApp
