Share 32: legal and financial roundup

In Share 32, we referenced a number of briefing papers and blogs for further reading. You'll find links to them below!

Impact of other recent Budget changes

Our Briefing Note has an example of how this all fits together (for ‘Don the donor’): 

The BN 2015/3 The government 2015 budgets implications for church treasurers


A silver lining?

Our two GASDS Briefing Papers guide church treasurers on the detail of the Small Donations Scheme: 

Gift aid small donations scheme- a practical guide

Gift aid small donations scheme- a comprehensive guide


Higher and additional rate taxpayers

Our Briefing Paper ‘Charitable Giving: Tax relief for higher and additional rate taxpayers’ explains the rules around Gift Aid and higher and additional rate tax relief.


Charitable Giving – Tax Relief for Higher and Additional Rate Taxpayers 


Dealing with annual bonuses, legacies and other windfalls

A great church needs great trustees

This blog looks at the roles and responsibilities of church trusteeship.


A final word

The Gift Aid scheme is a great way of giving tax effectively. But it is not the only way. 

Our Briefing Paper ‘It’s not what you give, it’s the way that you give it’ sets out other tax reliefs for charitable giving.


And a note for church treasurers …

Briefing Note 2015/3 explains the changing landscape in more detail and, in the Appendix, provides a pro forma estimate of the additional costs that a small church may face.
