You can benefit from an income tax incentive when you donate land or buildings.
As with Share Giving, donating property is highly tax-efficient. A deduction from your income is given for the market value of the property chargeable to income tax for the tax year in which the gift is made. (The market value of a property is what it would fetch in an open-market sale.)
You must use the relief available within the tax year you are making your donation. Relief cannot be carried forward to the next tax year or back to the previous one if you have insufficient income to make use of all relief available that year.
To claim your tax relief, complete the appropriate section of your tax return.
If you are not sent a tax return or if you want to claim relief before the end of the tax year, please contact Nigel Salomon on 020 8349 5757 or email@example.com for details of how to complete the necessary paperwork.
