ROI Tax efficient giving

If you pay RoI tax and you give more than €250 in a calendar year, we can reclaim the tax paid on your donation(s). This only applies to personal gifts, and not to funds raised through sponsorship. Tax–efficient giving can increase the value of your donation(s) by 45% . An enduring certificate (CHY3) is valid for a period of 5 years, while an annual certificate (CHY4) is valid for one year only.

The tax refund for donations from all donors regardless of their tax status (PAYE or Self–assessed) will now go to the charity in all cases at a blended rate of 31%. Charities no longer need to ask donors about their tax affairs. The only reason that a refund claim will be rejected is if the donor has not paid sufficient tax in the relevant year to cover the reclaim or inaccurate details have been supplied.

The qualifying donation threshold remains at €250.

The tax relief will now be given at a blended rate of 31% regardless of the rate of tax paid by the donor and this will be on a grossed up basis.

If you are a UK taxpayer, Church of Ireland can claim back an additional 25p for each £1 you donate – at no further cost to you. You must pay an amount of income and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax that Church of Ireland and any other charity or CASC reclaims on your donations in the tax year (currently 25p for each £1)

Select this option by clicking the check box on the donations page.
