Army Museums

Legacies

Any gift to the Army Museums Ogilby Trust, however large or small, will help us to safeguard the Nations’ military heritage through the medium of regimental and corps museums. When considering such a gift, an important point should be borne in mind:

Legacy giving can reduce inheritance tax. The figures change each year, but if your total estate, including property, is worth more than £263,000, it could be liable for inheritance tax. Any gift made to your spouse or to a charity, including AMOT, is free of tax.

However, there are many issues that may affect the level of inheritance tax and your solicitor can advise you about your particular circumstances. If you do decide to leave a legacy to AMOT, please show your solicitor the preferred wording below.

Residuary Bequests

Subject to the payment of my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give the whole/___% of my estate not otherwise disposed of by this my Will to the Army Museums Ogilby Trust (registered charity number 250907) of 58, The Close, Salisbury SP1 2EX, for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Director or other proper officer of the charity shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the said legacy.

Pecuniary Bequests

I give free of tax to the Army Museums Ogilby Trust (registered charity number 250907) of 58, The Close, Salisbury SP1 2EX the sum of £_____ for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Director or other proper officer of the charity shall be full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.

Should you wish to inform the Director AMOT that you have made provision for such a gift in your Will not only will your generosity be gratefully acknowledged but the information will be of great assistance to us in planning our future support to regimental and corps museums.
