Did You Know?
Donations to charity are tax deductible expenses!
These donations can reduce your taxable income and lower your tax bill. Not everyone will be able to deduct their charitable contributions, however. You will need to itemize your tax deductions in order to claim any charity. for more information
There are a number of tax benefits associated with annual donations of €250 + to registered charities including Kerry Cancer Support Group. The recipient of the benefit depends on the type of taxpayer making the donation:
In the case of PAYE taxpayers, donations of €250 + received by the Kerry Cancer Support Group, or any other registered charity, in one tax year are treated as having been received "net" of tax. For example: An individual on the standard rate of tax (i.e. 20%) makes a donation of €500. The value of the donation to the Kerry Cancer Support Group = €625 i.e. €500 x 100/80. The tax associated with the donation = €125. The Kerry Cancer Support Group will be able to claim a repayment of €125 from the Revenue Commissioners.
Self-assessed taxpayers can reclaim the income tax they pay on donations of €250+ in any one tax year. For example: A self-assessed individual on the standard rate of tax (i.e. 20%) makes a donation of €500. The cost to the taxpayer is €400. The taxpayer claims a deduction for the donation on his/her tax return. No repayment claim by the Kerry Cancer Support Group arises.
The company claims a deduction for donations of €250 + in any one tax year as if it were a trading expense. The Kerry Cancer Support Group's registered Charity number is CHY 19048. This information is taken from the Revenue Commissioner's paper "Scheme of Tax Relief for Donations to Eligible Charities and other Approved Bodies, Under Section 848A, Taxes Consolidation Act 1997.
