Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a gift in your will is a way of ensuring that The Helpful Bureau continues to make a real difference in the lives of older adults for generations to come.

Under present legislation when more than 10% of a gross estate is left to charitable causes the balance of the estate is subject to a preferable rate of inheritance tax.

If you already have a will and wish to make a simple amendment, such as leaving a gift to The Helpful Bureau, you can make a codicil. There is no limit to how many codicils you add, but a codicil is only suitable for straightforward alterations. The codicil form needs to be signed and witnessed in the same way as your will. The form must then be kept in a safe place with your will.

If you would like more information or to discuss with someone about leaving a legacy to The Helpful Bureau please contact Heather on 0115 949 1175 or
