UK Legacies

From 6 April 2012, any estate which leaves at least 10% of its taxable wealth to a charitable cause will be able to take advantage of a reduced rate in Inheritance Tax, from its normal level of 40% down to 36%. What this means in practice is the benefit to a charitable cause will be four times greater than the cost to the estate’s beneficiary, as HMRC will shoulder the burden of 76 pence for every pound donated, whereas the estate pays only 24 pence.

For those people who are already planning to leave a legacy, the new rules result in a breakeven level of 4% (of taxable wealth) – ie, there is no greater cost to the beneficiary if the estate donates 4% or 10% of the taxable wealth to charity.

Please consider leaving a legacy to The BroadOak Bursary Fund

Gift Aid 

Download this form

Donating through Gift Aid means charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra.

Charities can claim Gift Aid on most donations, but some payments don’t qualify.

You need to make a Gift Aid declaration for the charity to claim. You usually do this by filling in a form – See the form available to download above.

You must give a separate declaration to each charity you want to donate to through Gift Aid.

You can include all donations from the last 4 years. Tell the charity about any tax years where you didn’t pay enough tax.
