Stocks and shares

All donations of shares will receive income tax relief of 100% of their market value. 

The only requirements to this are that as a donor you must:

  • Claim the tax relief yourself in your tax return
  • Be liable to pay the amount of tax deducted (ie the gift can not give rise to a tax credit)
  • Give the shares intact to Christ Church (ie not sell them first)
  • Give listed shares or securities, units in authorised unit trusts, shares in open-ended investment companies, holdings in foreign collective investment schemes or unlisted shares or securities dealt in on a recognised stock exchange, such as the Alternative Investment Market

In addition to the income tax saving, donors making gifts of shares will not attract any capital gains tax liability. All shares donated to charity give rise neither to a gain or loss for capital gains tax purposes.
