Parish Share Discount Scheme

For the first time ever the Diocese of St Asaph is offering Parishes a refund on their Parish Share if they pay in full by direct debit during 2013.

Any Parish that has no outstanding debt and pays the 2013 share on time every month or every quarter will receive 2% back by cheque in January 2014.

Put simply, if your Parish Share is £20,000 and you pay it on time during 2013, you will receive a cheque for £400 (2% of the share) in January next year.

There will also be incentives for Parishes who are trying to pay off historic Share.

Those who pay the 2013 Share in full and clear 100% of their arrears will receive the 2% rebate and a 10% refund on the arrears they have cleared.

A Parish paying the 2013 Share in full and clearing 50% of arrears will receive the 2% rebate and a 5% refund which will help to pay off the outstanding arrears.

Finally a Parish that pays in full in 2013 and clears 20% of the debt will receive the 2% rebate to help pay down the outstanding arrears.

The table below explains it in more detail.

The offer of a refund on Parish Share debt is a one-off for 2013 only.
