Legacies and Bequests

  
  Wills


   EVERYONE CAN LEAVE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE

Naturally, the interest of close relatives and friends will come first when you are making a Will, but many people leave the residue (or part of the residue) of their estate to a charity. This is called a residuary bequest.  With one pound going ten times as far when providing care in Romania your legacy could help patients for many years to come.
By making a bequest in this way, your gift will keep pace with inflation and will be just as valuable in years to come as it is the day you make your Will.


   HOW DO I CHANGE MY WILL? 

If you have changed your mind fundamentally about who benefits from your Will, or if your estate changes a great deal in value, you may be best advised to make an entirely new Will. We usually suggest that you ask a Solicitor to draft your Will, especially if it is complicated. 

If you are only making minor changes, you can add a short instruction known as a Codicil, to your existing Will. This is a good way of adding new legacies for a number of different causes if you wish.


  WRITTING A WILL

Here is the suggested wording for a residuary bequest should you wish support Association P.A.V.E.L. (Romania):

"I give, to the Association P.A.V.E.L., Sos. Mihai Bravu 311-313, Bl.SB1, Sc. 1, Ap. 1, Sector 3,Bucharest, Romania (Registered Charity Permit: 885/96 ;Registration no: 4/91944 ) (enter the word "all" or the size of the share   ) of the residue of my estate for its general charitable purposes, and I further direct that the receipt of the Executive Director or other proper officer of the said charity shall be a good discharge for the same".

If you prefer you can leave Association P.A.V.E.L. a set sum of money or a specific gift. This is called a pecuniary legacy/ specific legacy.

 
  Tax Efficient Giving

   Share Giving

Have you ever thought about giving shares to charity?  Many people from around of the world who own shares are not aware that this is a very tax efficient way of supporting your favourite cause.

Many people hold small numbers of shares that may be uneconomic to sell.  Some may have shares that are just gathering dust.  Others may have ‘windfall shares’ as a result of privatisation. 
A few will have a whole portfolio of share investments. It doesn’t matter which category you are in, you can make a big difference to Association P.A.V.E.L. in this way!
 
Significant tax incentive was introduced in Europe, for instance, to encourage people to donate shares to charity.  In most cases, when donors give publicly quoted shares to charity, or sell them to the charity at a price below the market value, they can now get relief against their personal income tax bill. This is in addition to exemption from capital gains tax on the gains they may have made on those shares.  This means that giving shares could be both an act of generosity as well as a shrewd financial decision.

There is a very simple procedure to make a gift of shares to Association P.A.V.E.L. (Romania). Ask for further details in your country.


  Giving Land or Buildings
 

There is a tax incentive that allows individuals to make gifts of land or buildings to a UK charity or sell them at a price below the market value (on condition that they charity is willing to accept the gift).

Relief is given for the market value of the property/land and this is offset against the donor’s income chargeable to income tax in the tax year in which the gift is made. 
For example, in UK, if land valued at £25,000 was donated to the charity and the cost of transferring the land was £1,000, then £26,000 would be offset against the donor’s income that year.  For many people this could generate a significant saving in tax.

This applies to both land and buildings whether freehold or leasehold, providing the whole of the donor’s interest in the property is given to charity (e.g. they cannot continue to live in the property, nor can they donate half of their interest).
Donations of this kind may be rare, but they can produce significant outcomes for patients in Romania.

I understand that I must pay Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to or more than the tax which the charity is able to reclaim on my donations.  I agree to notify the charity if I cannot fulfil that requirement at any time during the future.

  Writing a Codicil

Below is some suggested wording for a Codicil to add a legacy for the Association P.A.V.E.L. to your existing Will.
I [     full name     ] of [     address     ] DECLARE  this to be a [    first/second/etc   ] Codicil to my Will dated [   insert date of Will  ]:

1. In addition to any legacies given by me in my said Will I give to the Association P.A.V.E.L., Sos. Mihai Bravu 311-313, Bl.SB1, Sc. 1, Ap. 1, Sector 3, Bucharest, Romania (Registered Charity Permit: 885/96 ; Registration no: 4/91944 ) free of all tax, the sum of        (amount in words and figures) / (or give a description of the specific gift in place of  "the sum of ") for its general charitable purposes, and I further direct that the receipt of the Executive Director or other proper officer of the said charity shall be a good discharge for the said legacy. 

Additional wording may be added to the legacy or codicil examples above to cover the possibility of a name change, merger or transfer of assets to another body.

If before my death (or even after my death, but before my executors have given effect to the gift) Association P.A.V.E.L. (Romania) has changed its name or amalgamated with any other body or transferred all its assets to any other body then my executors shall give effect to the gift as if it were a gift to the body in its changed name or to the body which results from the amalgamation or to the body which the assets have been transferred.

Have Your Will Witnessed.

When you are happy with your Will or Codicil, it will need to be properly signed by you and witnessed. Two independent witnesses are needed, and they and their spouses must be people who have nothing to gain from the Will. All must be present together and sign in each other's presence. A solicitor will ensure that the Will is correctly witnessed.

Here is a form of words suitable for a Codicil to an existing Will.

In all other respects I confirm my said Will and any other Codicils thereto.

IN WITNESS whereof I have hereunto set my hand this [  insert day, month and year  ] .
Signed by the said [    insert your full name     ] as a Codicil to [  his/her ] last Will in the presence of us who at [  his/her  ] request and in the presence of each other have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses [       insert the signature, name and address of two witnesses        ].
