4. We do not pay GST or VAT. VAT can be reclaimed on purchases from the UK at point of purchase. GST can be reclaimed from the taxes offices - see FAQ on this site.

5. Grant applications from members may be unsuccessful for a number of reasons. In such circumstances the AJC may be aware of another organisation which would consider the application. If you would like us to forward your application to them directly, you can authorise us to do so by signing the "consent" section of the application form. You will be notified after your application has been forwarded. If you do not want us to release your application to any other organisation, sign the "do not consent" section.

Furthermore, the Administrator must be in receipt of your annual subscription and Annual Return.
