Charitable Giving

In these times of relative austerity, it may be assumed that charitable giving will take a back seat for many clients. There are however many tax advantages associated with making such gifts, either by way of lifetime gift aid donations to reduce Income Tax or by including charitable legacy provisions within your Will to mitigate Inheritance Tax exposure.

We are also able to advise on the establishment of Charitable Foundations or Trusts for both tax planning purposes and also to allow our clients to witness first-hand the benefits which their funds provide to others during their lifetime.

  • We can advise on the optimum Income Tax reliefs available on lifetime charitable donations via the gift aid scheme, ensuring maximum benefit to both you and your chosen charity.
  • As part of our Inheritance Tax planning service, working alongside your legal advisor, we provide advice on careful Will drafting to leave a legacy to charity giving you assurance that your nominated charity will benefit at the same time as mitigating your exposure to tax on your death.
