How you can claim your tax credits for donations to donee organisations

From 1 April 2014 you can only claim donation tax credits within a period of four years, following the year in which the gift was made.

If the donation is an unconditional gift

Example

You belong to a charitable organisation and donate money towards a project the group is working on. If your donation doesn’t entitle you to receive anything in return, it’s an unconditional gift.

Donations that are unconditional gifts can include:

  • door-to-door appeals and street collections
  • bequests
  • voluntary school fees (but not school activity fees).

If the donation is not an unconditional gift

Example

You belong to a charitable organisation and pay to advertise your business in their monthly magazine. This is not an unconditional gift because you receive something of value in return, so you can’t claim a tax credit for it.

Donations that aren’t unconditional gifts can include:

  • subscriptions
  • income from trading activities
  • payments made by the Crown or a public authority.

If your koha payments or gifts are tax deductible

Your koha, donations or gifts may be tax deductible if:

  • the gift or koha is linked to the giver’s business or taxable activity and
  • adequate records are kept to support the payment and linkage.
