Charitable Gifts

Giving money to charity both whilst you are alive and when you die will be free from inheritance tax.  From 6 April 2012 the laws on gifting money to charity on death changed, and a reduced rate of 36% was introduced for those estates where tax is payable (i.e., estates over £325,000) and at least 10% of the net estate is left to charity.

If you are thinking of leaving any part of your estate to charity, we can make sure that your will is properly drafted to take advantage of the reduced rate.
