US citizens (and other individuals subject to US income tax) who pay tax in the UK [or UK taxpayers resident in the US], can receive tax benefits in both the UK and US for the same donation. This is achieved when the donation is made to a UK charity (and thus eligible for UK Gift Aid and tax-relief) whose shares are owned by a US nonprofit and which has elected to be a ‘disregarded entity’ under US law. For UK purposes, the charity is a just a UK charity. If the donation is eligible for Gift Aid and tax-relief, it can be applied for. For US tax purposes the UK charity doesn’t exist and donations to it are as if made to the US nonprofit parent. The donor can take a US tax deduction for the donation to the extent allowed by US law. Chapel & York’s US and UK Foundations are so linked and can offer your donors these benefits.
