Tax credit available for donations
The New Zealand Transplant Games Association Inc is a charitable organisation registered with the Charities Commission. The Association has been approved as a donee organisation by the Inland Revenue Department. This means that individuals who donate to our Association can claim a tax credit and Companies can claim a tax deduction.
Gifts of Money by Individuals
From the 2008 – 2009 tax year, individuals who give cash donations of $5 or more to donee organisations may claim a tax credit of one third (33.33%) of the total of all donations, up to the amount of their taxable income.
To qualify for this tax credit:
- The gift must be made in money – gifts of goods or property do not qualify
- The gift can’t be made under the will of a deceased person
- Each gift must be $5 or more.
However, you can still qualify for a tax credit if an arrangement is in place to make a gift of under $5 through regular instalments throughout the year, and the total at the end of the year is $5 or more.
Further information regarding claiming the donations tax credit is available at the following link to the Inland Revenue Department website:
Payroll Giving for Individuals
Payroll giving, where offered by your employer, gives you the opportunity to donate to approved donee organisations direct from your pay and receive immediate tax credits that reduce your PAYE payable. You don’t need to wait until the end of the year to claim your tax credit.
Further information regarding payroll giving is available at the following link to the Inland Revenue Department website:
Gifts of Money by Certain Companies
From the 2008 - 2009 tax year, a company (including an unlisted close company), can claim a donation deduction for cash donations it makes to donee organisations. A “close company” is one that has five or fewer shareholders. The maximum donation deduction that can be claimed is limited to the company’s net income (ie. Income, less expenses, but before the donation deduction is deducted)
