Remember a charity in your will campaign
Norrie Waite and Slater are pleased to announce that they are now supporting the Remember A Charity in Your Will scheme. Remember A Charity is a consortium of over 140 charities founded in 2000 to raise awareness of the importance of legacies to charities.
Legacies are a vital and often the main source of voluntary income for many UK Charities. Charitable legacies are exempt from inheritance tax. The government has recently sought to further encourage charitable legacies. Since 6 April 2013 where an estate includes a qualifying charitable legacy of more than 10% of the net estate, the rate of inheritance tax is reduced from 40% to 36%.
A professionally drafted will is essential to ensure that any inheritance tax exemptions are maximised and that the legacy reaches the charity of your choosing.
