Donate listed shares and you'll get income tax relief.
Donors can claim tax relief equal to the market value of the shares on the day the gift is given, together with any associated costs such as brokers' fees. Furthermore, capital gains tax (CGT) will not apply. However, if the shares have gone down in value, the donor is not entitled to use this loss to offset any other CGT liability.
For example, if you are a higher rate taxpayer and you donate £1,000 of shares, you could get £400 deducted from your next tax bill.
