Standing Orders

Please fill in this form and send it to us. We will record your generous intentions and forward the form to the bank/building society nominated by you in Section 2 of this Form for their action. Let us assure that the information you provide below will be held by the Vihara Administration in the strictest confidence.

Access to it will be restricted to the Chief Incumbent and, with his authority, to the Treasurer of the Vihara for accounting purposes only. Also, because we are able to claim back the tax paid on every £1 you donate out of your taxed income thus increasing the value of your donation to the Vihara by 20%, these Standing Order Forms may be inspected by the Tax Office from time to time to verify our claims.
