Changing your will is an ideal opportunity to think about Inheritance Tax liabilities and include a donation to a charity.

Once you have decided on the cause(s) you want to benefit, a simple codicil (an addition or change to your existing Will) is usually all that is required.

Any money left to UK charities is free of Inheritance Tax.  Please seek professional advice.
