  • You accept that if the cumulative net sale proceeds from the sale of your goods exceed £1,000 in any tax year you will be notified of the additional value of your sales as further goods are sold.  If we do not hear from you within 21 days of the date of the notification, we will assume you wish to donate the money raised in this way to Demelza Hospice Care for Children
  • In order to cover an initial donation of up to £1,000 without further notification from us, you must have paid at least £250 income tax and/or capital gain tax in the UK during that tax year
