Leave A Gift In Your Will – FAQs

We recommend consulting a solicitor when writing your Will, to cover all legal formalities and ensure your Will is valid. The cost of this will vary depending on the complexity of your Will and the assets you have/arrangements you need to make.

If you use Bequeathed to make your Will, you will receive a 30 minute appointment with a solicitor free of charge to help you complete your Will.

The Law Society can also help you to find a local solicitor. For more information, call 020 7320 5650 or visit www.lawsociety.org.uk.

Currently inheritance tax is paid to the UK government at a rate of 40% if your estate is worth more than £325,000. However, the rate might be reduced to 36% if 10% or more of your estate is left to charity. Most gifts left to Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex are exempt from inheritance tax because we are a charity. Contact HMRC or a solicitor to find out more.

We are very grateful for all donations. However, we encourage supporters to consider a legacy gift because we don’t know what situations may arise in the future, and this kind of gift allows us to be prepared for this.
We understand that you may have a preference as to how your gift is used – and you’re entitled to this. However, we encourage gifts left to us to be unrestricted, because it means we are free to use the money where it is most needed at the time.
