Charities and Charitable Trusts

Allan Janes have a long history of establishing and running charitable trusts. We can advise trustees on their fiduciary obligations, including filing requirements with the Charities Commission. We can assist in the creation of charitable trusts as part of your succession and inheritance tax planning ,whether this is done during your lifetime or on death.

We also have in-depth expertise in the making of charitable bequests in your Will, especially on-going bequests such as the funding of scholarships for your University or College. We can advise on the inheritance tax implications of charitable gifting, allowing your estate to make full use of the reduced rate of inheritance tax where it is appropriate.  

If you have any queries about charitable gifting please do not hesitate to contact us for further advice.
