Give as You Earn is a scheme that enables employees to donate to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted) meaning that you receive immediate tax relief. This means that a monthly donation of £10 straight out of your payroll, actually only costs you £8! (Even less if you are in the higher tax bracket).


Help give the gift of independence:


What you should do: Simply ask your Payroll Department if they already operate a Give as You Earn scheme and, if so, how you sign up. Just fill in the Give as You Earn form available here. 

 

Gifts in your Will (or legacies)

Charitable legacies are free of inheritance tax, which is charged at a rate of 40% on estates over and above the threshold, which is currently £325,000.  So if you make or change your Will, after looking after your loved ones, please consider the charities that you hold close to your heart.  By remembering a charity in your Will, you may be able to limit the amount the tax man gets his hands on! Gifts made to a UK charity in the seven years prior to your death are also covered by the same exemption from inheritance tax.  Read more about how a gift in your Will could help.


Share Giving

What is it? When you give or sell shares to a charity you can get substantial relief on your income tax bill, as well as exemption from Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on any gains you may have made on your shares.  Like Payroll Giving, you receive the tax relief.

Tax effective donations by companies

Gifts of money to UK charities by companies are made before tax is deducted (i.e. out of gross income or profits) so no Gift Aid declaration is required.  Companies can claim tax relief for donations to UK charities as a charge against income in their corporation tax computation. There are also tax effective ways of donating equipment, stock or manpower. 
See http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/businesses/giving/companies.htm for more details.

A date to go down in the history of Canine Partners

Andy Cook - Sunday, July 20, 2014
13th, July 2014 will be a date that will feature in the history of Canine Partners, when others look back from the future. It was on 13th July that Canine Partners really took a step forward in the Midlands, as His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester, patron of Canine Partners, made his first visit to our budding Midlands Centre, along with vice patron Roger Jefcoate CBE DL, and the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Lady Gretton.

Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre

Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.

We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.

Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.

The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.

This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.

For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email catharvey@caninepartners.org.uk

Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
