☛ LYC is a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) and consequently anything you pay to the club is considered to be a donation. You can boost your donation by 25% if you are a UK taxpayer and you agree to Gift Aid your donation. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Long Yang Club Badminton London (CASC #CH10653) from the tax you pay for the current tax year. If you agree to Gift Aid by choosing “YES” below, you are agreeing to Gift Aid this donation and any donations you make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to Long Yang Club Badminton London. You also understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in the tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
