How to leave a gift in your Will
If you would like to leave a gift in your Will, we recommend you speak with your solicitor to ensure your wishes are carried out as you intend. Creating or updating a Will is fairly straight forward, but it is important it is done correctly.
All gifts to charity are exempt from inheritance tax, whether they are made during your lifetime or in your Will. If you gift 10% or more of the value of your net estate on death to charity, the rate of inheritance tax on the remaining estate falls from 40% to 36%, which can result in a significant tax saving. Your solicitor will be able to advise on this further.
