Treasurers Handbook



This section contains proceeds forms, expense claim forms and gift aid forms

Garden Proceeds Forms are emailed to Garden Owners directly after their opening however copies of the forms can be downloaded from this section for those who require a paper form.

Matched funding can be a significant way in which to increase revenue from garden openings and the flyer contains information on the process that needs to be followed. It works on the principle that a company/organisation gives a donation to ‘match’ funds raised for charity at an event.

Donations and Gifts to The National Garden Scheme can be made under the Gift Aid Scheme, allowing the National Garden Scheme to reclaim the tax at no extra cost to yourself and help donate more to charity. Gift Aid can only be used for an individual donation or gift from a UK taxpayer and cannot be used for funds raised at a garden opening.

The National Garden Scheme will reimburse, against receipts where possible, certain expenses incurred in travelling to and from National Garden Scheme meetings. Overnight accommodation must be pre-approved by HO prior to any booking is made. Expenses must be claimed in the year the expense occurred. Please use the relevant Expense Forms to submit a claim.

The Receipt Form is to be used for example when acknowledging receipt of garden proceeds to garden owner.
