For individuals and businesses wanting to donate money to support those suffering in Ukraine, there are a number of charities providing humanitarian relief. Ideally this should be done via the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Appeal at www.dec.org.uk/.

Gift Aid Boosts Your Donations by 25%

Individual UK taxpayers should make sure to tick the Gift Aid box as that will increase their donation by 25%. It should also be remembered that, like pension contributions, higher and additional rate taxpayers are able to obtain even more tax relief. For example, a £40 donation only costs £30 after higher rate tax relief.

Get in touch to discuss how tax-efficient charitable giving could benefit you.
