Tax Relief

Your business can get tax relief if it makes a gift of equipment or trading stock to a charity or Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC). By using Jamie's for your IT disposal you will be able to reduce the taxable profits your business makes by the value of the IT equipment donated, because we are a charity. Using Jamie's Computers means you'll pay less tax. This applies whether you're in business as a sole trader, a partnership or a company.

Businesses can potentially offset the value of any equipment they donate to charity against their corporation tax for the year

Data Destruction

All equipment donated to us that contains a hard drive is carried in our own vehicle back to our warehouse where all residual information is completely erased. This is done by the use of Tabernus erasure software, a product which is tested and approved by the UK Government Agency CESG, to the Infosec 5 standard. Data destruction offers advantages over physical destruction as it allows equipment to be reused and refurbished thus giving it a second life. Hard-drives that are faulty or cannot be wiped of data are destroyed. This service is free of charge

Reuse and Recycling

 

We are a Microsoft Approved Refurbisher and we reuse as many computers as possible. Our team of technicians refurbish the equipment we receive to a high standard and make them available for reuse. Anyone can buy from us and our prices are kept low so that under-privileged individuals and charities can afford them - people who may not otherwise have had access to a computer. Please go to sales for more information about the packages we offer.    

 

We take full liability for the equipment we receive and refurbish.

Only computers that cannot be refurbished are sent on to be recycled by an Environment Agency registered company (within the UK) who also work to a high standard.

 

Reusing a computer is up to 20 times better for the environment than breaking it up and recycling it.* Manufacturing new computers uses energy, fossil fuels and finite resources whereas prolonging the life of a computer is the best way to reduce the carbon footprint of IT.
