Largest scale TR international response operation

THIRTY-SIX HOURS AFTER A 7.8 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE HIT NEPAL IN APRIL 2015, A TEAM FROM TEAM RUBICON USA WAS EN ROUTE TO KATHMANDU.

Not long after their arrival, a team of British Armed Forces veterans, including Gurkhas, began preparations to join them for Operation: Tenzing. This became Team Rubicon United Kingdom (TR UK) working alongside TR USA to support those impacted by the quake.

GENERAL SIR NICK PARKER, FORMER COMMANDER OF BRITISH LAND FORCES AND BOARD MEMBER OF TEAM RUBICON GLOBAL, PUT OUT A CALL TO ACTION ASKING UK VETERANS TO VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME AND SKILLS TO PROVIDE AID IN NEPAL.

He quickly pulled together an impressive roster of men and women focused on providing medical aid, search and rescue support, and translation assistance in several remote regions of Nepal.

In the following months Team Rubicon UK was officially established as a charity in the UK and by the end of the year had responded to further calls for assistance from both the UK and abroad.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Team Rubicon UK to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Team Rubicon UK we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Team Rubicon UK to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Team Rubicon UK will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Team Rubicon UK receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
