London commercial law firm and the UK's leading charity solicitors Bates Wells Braithwaite will be bringing you tax advice on charitable giving and investment through the City Philanthropy bulletin. Here Bill Lewis and Stephen Lloyd explain how to make the most of tax relief on charitable donations as the tax year draws to a close.
We define philanthropy as the giving of resources in an engaged and strategic way for maximum impact and in a tax efficient manner. It can include the giving of money, assets, time, talent, voice and one’s social capital. We believe in the power of philanthropy as a great social connector and the source of many great opportunities.
