LEGACIES AND DONATIONS
Leaving a legacy/bequeathing a donation in your Will is a simple, tax efficient method of ensuring your support of the SES will continue into the future. For more information, please contact Gail Lloyd (email@example.com).
Gift Aid allows the SES to reclaim the tax already paid on subscriptions and/or donations, and will increase the value of gifts at no extra cost. Persons paying subscriptions and making donations need to be currently resident in the UK and be a UK taxpayer. Persons also need to pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax for each tax year at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities to which that person donates will reclaim on gifts for that tax year. It is currently 25p for every £1 donated. Other taxes, such as VAT and council tax, do not qualify. In order to claim Gift Aid, the SES periodically need forms completed to ensure that donations/subscriptions still comply.
