Tax Relief on Donations 

Tax Relief Form

There are a number of tax benefits associated with annual donations of €250 + to the Galway Rape Crisis Centre. The recipient of the benefit depends on the type of taxpayer making the donation:

Self-Assessed Taxpayers

Self-assessed taxpayers can reclaim the income tax they pay on donations of €250+ in any one tax year. We will send you a receipt for your donation. When you fill out your tax return, deduct the donation amount from your taxable income thus reducing your tax bill. The donor benefits directly from the tax relief on donations.

Corporate Donations

The company claims a deduction for donations of €250 + in any one tax year as if it were a trading expense. The company benefits from the tax relief.

PAYE Taxpayers

In the case of PAYE taxpayers, donations of €250 + received by the Galway Rape Crisis Centre, or any other registered charity, in one tax year are treated as having been received “net” of tax.

For Example:

(a) Individual on the standard rate of tax, i.e. 20%

Individual donates €500

Value of donation to the GRCC = €625, i.e. €500 x (100 ÷ 80)

Tax associated with the donation (€625 – €500) = €125

The GRCC will therefore be able to claim a repayment of €125 from Revenue at the end of the tax year.

(b) Individual on the higher rate of tax, i.e. 41%

Individual donates €500

Value of donation to the GRCC = €847.46, i.e. €500 x (100 ÷ 59)

Tax associated with the donation (€847.46 – €500) = €347.46

The GRCC will will therefore be able to claim a repayment of €347.46 from Revenue at the end of the tax year.
