Charitable Relief

Any money you gift either in the seven years before you die or in your Will to a registered or qualifying charity, will be exempt from Inheritance Tax. In order to assist charitable giving, the Government has now amended the level of Inheritance Tax payable if you leave a legacy of 10% or more of your estate to a charity.

If you were able to gift a minimum of 10% or more, then the remainder of your estate will be taxed at 36% as opposed to the normal 40%.

To find out more about a qualifying charity and how to reduce your Inheritance Tax liability, please call 01536 276300.
