We've teamed up with ShareGift†, the share donation charity, to provide you with a free and easy way of giving unwanted shares to help UK Registered Charities.
Is it worth going to the trouble of transferring such tiny holdings?
The answer is a resounding yes! Not only could it save you any charges for managing odd lines of stock and take away the hassle of tiny dividends that may still have to be declared, but the overall result of all these small share donations is the millions of pounds that ShareGift donates for hundreds of different UK registered charities whether local, national or international.
Please note: Giving shares to charity gives rise to neither a gain nor a loss for Capital Gains Tax purposes. UK taxpayers may also be able to claim income tax relief on the value of a share donation. Further information can be obtained from the HMRC or your tax adviser. ShareGift can only make donations to UK registered charities.
