How can you help Grow to claim tax relief?
As a donor, there is no obligation to permit Grow to claim tax relief in respect of your donations. However, if you have made a payment of at least €250 in a single year you can help Grow to claim tax relief on your donation by completing an:
- Enduring Certificate – CHY3 Certificate valid for a period of five years
- Annual Certificate – CHY4 Certificate valid for a period of one year.
If you donate to more than one charity, you can complete a certificate for each organisation.
Grow will need you to provide the following information for each claim:
- donor name
- donor Personal Public Service Number (PPSN)
- amount of donation
- whether or not the donor is associated with the charity.
See THIS LINK for more information.
What is a qualifying donation?
A donation will qualify under the Charitable Donation Scheme if it is:
- a payment of at least €250 made in a single year
- a payment of less than €1m made in a single year
- in the form of money or designated securities, or a combination of money and shares
- not repayable.
Any payments you make by standing order or direct debit will also qualify.
As a donor, you may wish to make a donation to more than one approved body. If so, each payment to an approved body will qualify for the scheme.
Tax relief is restricted to 10% of your total income for the year if there is a connection between:
- you as the donor and the approved body you are donating to.
As a donor, you must not receive any benefit, either directly or indirectly, as a result of the donation. A donation cannot be conditional on the approved body buying a property from a donor. This also applies to any person connected to you.
