Philanthropist: Tax cut would boost donations

Sir Peter Lampl, founder and chairman of the Sutton Trust, has suggested that charity donors should pay less tax, arguing that this would encourage a culture of giving. Suggesting that the British gift aid system was confusing, Sir Peter pointed to America where charitable donations are deducted from tax bills and noted analysis showing that Americans give less frequently but more generously than Brits, at about £411 per capita a year compared with £170. He believes that the Government should simplify the tax treatment of donations to make gift aid easier to understand and treat giving as a straight deduction from income.
