Benefits of Charitable Legacies in Wills

Many UK residents are recognising the dual benefits of charitable legacies in Wills. Beyond the altruistic satisfaction, such gifts may reduce the inheritance tax (IHT) rate upon death from 40% to 36%. Dive deeper into will-writing essentials here.


What are Charitable Legacies?

A charitable legacy is a testamentary gift made to a charitable organisation. These legacies are pivotal in assisting charities in furthering their causes. Yet, charities often face administrative challenges in managing these gifts.


Gifting for a Lasting Legacy

A well-drafted Will mirrors a client’s ethos, aligning wealth with values and passions. By apprising clients of the possibility to include a charity in their Will, we ensure that Will-writing is both comprehensive and empowering. Moreover, for those above the Inheritance Tax threshold, charitable gifts may offer significant tax reliefs.


The Real-World Impact of Charitable Legacies

Legacy gifts are transformative. They finance critical missions, such as 60% of RNLI lifeboat launches or a third of Marie Curie’s hospice care. Such gifts have also secured the future for countless animals at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. This showcases the tangible impact of each charitable legacy, whether large or small
