Gift of shares

There are many ways in which you can donate to Sue Ryder, but a gift of shares in a public company is one of the most effective methods of giving.

12 million people in the UK currently own shares worth over £200 billion. If just a small fraction donated these to Sue Ryder, imagine the huge difference it could make to the care we provide.

Not only is it easy to do, but donating shares to Sue Ryder is one of the most tax-efficient ways that you can help us.

This is because you receive two tax credits:

  • A capital gains tax credit
  • An income tax credit at your marginal rate

With the capital gains tax credit, this simply means that you pay no capital gains tax. But the income tax credit can have a highly valuable impact.

You can find out more by visiting HMRC - giving assets.
