There are a number of ways you can support the Scotland’s Churches Trust:
Donations are this Trust’s most important form of income. They are gratefully received, however large or small.
Under the Gift Aid scheme the Trust can increase your donation by recovering tax you have paid in your donation at no additional cost to you.
Please use one of the links below to donate now.
For more information on how Gift Aid works click here.By making this donation you are declaring; "I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference." Please notify the charity if you: 1) want to cancel this declaration 2) change your name or home address 3) no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
If you donate shares to charity their market value is deducted from your taxable income and you have no capital gains tax to pay.
Please kindly remember this Trust when making or altering your Will. As a general rule assets bequeathed (or gifted) to charities are exempted from capital gains tax and inheritance tax.
If you are accustomed to giving substantial sums to several charities you are probably aware of other tax-efficient methods such as giving through the Charities Aid Foundation, King’s Hill, West Mailing, Kent ME19 4TA, or setting up a private charitable trust.
The Hon Treasurer will be pleased to explain any points not clear to you from these brief notes, please feel free to contact us.
