Donating shares is a great way to support Peace Hospice Care and help us to continue our vital work.

It can be very tax efficient as there is no capital gain or loss on shares donated to charity and you can claim income tax relief on the value of the shares.

In order to qualify for the tax relief, the shares or securities must be: 

  • listed or dealt on a recognised UK or foreign stock exchange
  • units in authorised unit trusts
  • shares in a UK open-ended investment company
  • holdings in certain foreign collective investment schemes

For more information on tax relief and what records you need to keep please see the HMRC guidance notes
