The Charitable Donation Tax Back Scheme allows tax relief on qualifying donations made to eligible charities and approved bodies. If you make a single donation of €250 or more or multiple donations totalling €250 or more over the course of a year, the charity or approved body can claim a refund of tax paid on that donation by the donor. Under this scheme a charity can claim the refund for the past 4 years also.

 

Increasing your donation

 

How it works is surprising simple. The donor signs and returns a CHY3 Certificate form (available on www.charitytaxback.ie ) and returns to the charity. The charity takes care of the rest. It’s really that easy.

For example, a donation of €250 is worth €362.50 to the charity. When the donor completes the form, the charity can then claim the extra €112.50. Very little the donor needs to do other than sign a form.

Get in touch with the charity if you have donated over €250. They will gladly assist you with completing the forms.
