Gift of Shares or Securities

Gifts of certain types of shares or securities may be eligible for UK tax relief. Please contact us to ensure that the Trust will be able to accept your gift and your tax or financial advisors to ensure tax relief is available to you in your particular circumstances.

Planned Giving

A bequest to Smithsonian UK Charitable Trust will be exempt from UK inheritance tax. 

You may wish to discuss with your legal or tax advisors the reduced rate of UK inheritance tax that is available in respect of estates leaving 10% or more to charity. If you were intending to leave 4% to one or more charities, then this relief may incentivise you to give even more.
