Your solicitor or trustee is best to advise on the exact words to ensure your wishes are honoured. Here is some sample wording for your consideration to update your will or add an additional clause in an addendum:
I give to the Animal Justice Foundation (ACN 639 400 454):
- the sum of $; or
- the rest and residue of my estate; or
- X percent of the rest and residue of my estate
for its general purposes free of all duties and taxes payable upon or in consequence of my death and I declare that the receipt of its Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer or other authorised officer will be a full and sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees who will not be obliged to enforce the application of the gift.
Tax implications of leaving a gift in your will
The taxation implications vary across states and territories. To ensure your will is structured in accordance with your wishes and to ensure you understand the specific tax implications for your estate, please speak to your solicitor or accountant for tailored advice for your individual situation.
