Legacy10: Leave 10% of estate to charity and claim 4% tax reduction

The campaign aims to take advantage of the change in inheritance tax rules to increase the number of people leaving money to charitable causes in their will. From April this year, anyone leaving 10% of their estate to charity can apply for a 4% reduction (from 40% to 36%) to their taxable estate.

There is an opportunity for charities working in the historic built environment to play a part in the campaign by visiting legacy10.com and adding their logo and link to the website under the ‘heritage’ section.
