Give in Memory

Leaving gifts to charity in your will

Your will says what will happen to your money, property and possessions after you die.

Your donation will either;

  • be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated
  • reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if more than 10% of your estate is left to charity

You can donate;

  • a fixed amount
  • an item
  • what’s left after other gifts have been given out

Writing your will

Find out how to write or update your will here – https://www.gov.uk/make-will/writing-your-will, including how to make sure it’s legal.

Include the charity’s full name – check with them or search the charity register in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Donating Land Property or shares

You don’t have to pay tax on land, property or shares donated to charity. This includes selling them for less than their market value.

You will get tax relief on both Income tax and Capital Gains Tax.

You must keep records of the donation to show that you made the gift or sale and that the charity has accepted it.

Details of Income Tax relief and Capital Gains Tax relief are available at https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/donating-land-or-shares
