Registered Charity number 1145141
Aberystwyth University is a registered charity. The benefits of our charitable status are:
- The University can reclaim tax from the Inland Revenue under the Gift Aid scheme, increasing the value of donations from UK tax payers by nearly a third.
- Higher rate tax payers can also qualify for personal tax deductions on donations made to the University.
- The University pays no income tax and inheritance tax on gifts of money or property it receives. A gift made to the University in a Will reduces the tax payable on the estate.
- A gift of stocks and shares made to the University will reduce the donor's income tax liability, and makes the gift exempt from capital gains tax.
