Legacy and UK tax
A legacy or bequest can take advantage of the tax privileges that are available to encourage such support for worthy causes. Legacies or bequests to a charity can reduce or eliminate the tax payable on the balance of any estate and are themselves exempt from inheritance tax.
How do I make a will?
Although it is possible to write a will by yourself, it is advisable to use a solicitor as there are various legal formalities you need to follow to make sure that your will is valid. You may need legal advice for more complicated matters. A solicitor can also advise you about how inheritance tax affects you and your loved ones.
Do we need to know your intentions?
We understand that the business of making a will is a very sensitive matter and it is completely voluntary for you to disclose details of your intentions.
Wording for a legacy
If you choose to make your own will, the following wording would be appropriate to leave a legacy:
I hereby bequeath to The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, Registered Charity No. 1133576, Mosaic Middle East, PO Box 229, Petersfield, Hampshire, GU32 9DL, the sum of £…… free from all taxes and other fiscal impositions for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be sufficient discharge for my executors.
If you are amending an existing will, all you will need is a simple codicil:
By this codicil to my last Will I hereby bequeath to The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, Registered Charity No. 1133576, Mosaic Middle East, PO Box 229, Petersfield, Hampshire, GU32 9DL, the sum of £…… free from all taxes and other fiscal impositions for its general purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being shall be sufficient discharge for my executors.
Thank you again for your interest in leaving a legacy to Mosaic Middle East. Your support will ensure that Iraqi Christians and other persecuted minorities continue to receive vital help where it is needed most.
