    Hi everyone, I have finally set it all up (after 4 months of slogging).
    So I have recorded all subs payments in registers in my gift aid folder, some having left now to Brownies obviously.
    I can claim 4 years back if I'm right, so do I claim each year seperately but make 3/4 claims now so we can have the funds in the bank or can I only claim for the year ending 2012? (would that be right?)

    You can make up to four years claims now. One of the Brownie Leaders in my district did that and got £1400!

    As a follow on from this question. If you make a back claim do you need to produce signatures for guides who have left? TIA

    You need to have a signed declaration for every individual (the parent) to for them to be included in a claim...

    Yes - I got our unit set up last year. I had sufficient records to be able to claim back to September 2014. I did 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 straight away (well, 2014-2015 first and then when that came through OK, I put 2015-2016 in) and then claimed for 2016-2017 once we finished our financial year (end of August.)
