How to Leave a Gift to BCT in Scotland

Scottish law on inheritance differs from the law of England and Wales.  The Rules of Intestacy do not apply and if someone in Scotland dies without a Will then the Scottish Rights of Succession apply instead. 

However, the laws relating to inheritance tax apply across the whole of the UK.

We recommend that anyone living in Scotland obtains the advice of a Scottish qualified solicitor.  BCT's registered charity number in Scotland is SCO40116.
