Gifts of shares and land to charities

You can claim to reduce your income tax bill when you make certain gifts of shares, land and buildings to charity. The relief is also available if you sell the shares, securities, land or buildings to the charity for less than their market value. All such gifts will also be exempted from capital gains tax.

The shares that qualify are typically shares quoted on a stock exchange.

The relief that you can claim against your income is the market value of the shares, land or buildings at the time you give or sell them to the charity, after certain adjustments.
