Tax Efficient Giving – there has never been a better time to give!
There has probably never been a more advantageous array of tax benefits for donating to charity in the UK. Some examples of the key current benefits are:
For a 20% tax payer, the charity can claim an extra £25 of Gift Aid for every £100 donated. A 40% tax payer can claim back £25 of tax for every £100 donated, so the £100 donation costs £75 and the charity receives £125 including Gift Aid. Make a Gift Aid Declaration
Gifts of Shares or Other Assets
Donors are entitled to Income Tax relief AND Capital Gains Tax relief on gifts of land, property or shares to charity.
Inheritance Tax and Legacies
Gifts left to charity in a will are deducted from the value of the estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated.
For a detailed review there are plenty of websites with good information. As with everything to do with tax, the rules can be complex and professional advice is often worth taking.
