Stocks and Shares
Gifts of listed shares and securities by UK Tax payers attract full relief from Capital Gains Tax and, in addition, allow the donor to claim Income Tax relief on the full value of the git at the time the shares or securities are transferred to the Foundation – in effect a double tax saving. We would be happy to arrange for you to receive in-depth advice on this type of gift.
Many companies now operate gift-matching schemes. When an employee makes a gift to a registered charity, the company may match this donation, in full or in part. To find out if your company operates such a scheme, and to obtain a copy of their matching gift form, please contact your Human Resources or Personnel Department. A full list of companies know to have matching schemes is available here
