Is there suggested wording I should use to leave a gift in my Will?
Your solicitor should be familiar with the wording to use, however here are two options depending on the type of gift you would like to leave:
Leaving a percentage or share of your estate (residuary gift)
I give to Cystic Fibrosis Trust of One Aldgate, London, EC3N 1RE, registered charity numbers 1079049 and SC040196, [all/_%of the residue] of my estate absolutely for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Legacy Administration Officer or other proper officer at Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executor(s).
Leaving a cash gift (pecuniary gift)
I give to Cystic Fibrosis Trust of One Aldgate, London, EC3N 1RE, registered charity numbers 1079049 and SC040196, the sum of [specify words and figures] free of tax for its general purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Legacy Administration Officer or other proper officer at Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the time being shall be a sufficient discharge to my executor(s).
Will my gift be liable for Inheritance Tax?
Gifts in Wills to charities are tax efficient. The threshold at which inheritance tax kicks in changes from time to time. To ensure you have the most up to date information and understand the tax implications for your estate, you should discuss this with your solicitor who will be able to advise.
What is the difference between a single and mirror Will?
A single Will is a Will for an individual. Mirror Wills, are two separate Wills which set out the same wishes within both. Essentially, mirroring each other.
