If you have supported charities in your lifetime, did you know that your estate can benefit from your giving at least 10% of your estate to charity in your Will? 

A reduced rate of inheritance tax of 36% applies instead of 40% on the balance of your estate if inheritance tax is going to be payable. 

Your personal circumstances will determine whether this will be useful to your family so you should always seek advice from a solicitor about the tax consequences on your estate.
