A donation to the Care4BrittleBones foundation with tax benefit
You want to donate an amount in cash ‘once-off’ to a recognised charity, but in such a way that you also have a tax benefit. You simply transfer the amount to the account of the institution you want to support. The statement of your bank or a receipt is often sufficient proof for the tax authorities. Periodic donations might lead to further tax benefits.
Donations within the EU
The European Court of Justice ruled on the 27th January 2009 that:
- When a taxpayer claims, in a Member State, the deduction for tax purposes or gifts to bodies established and recognised as charitable in another Member State, such gifts come within the compass of the provisions of the EC Treaty relating to the free movement of capital, even if they are made in kind in the form of everyday consumer goods.
- Article 56 EC precludes legislation of a Member State by virtue of which, as regards gifts made to bodies recognised as having charitable status, the benefit of a deduction for tax purposes is allowed only in respect of gifts made to bodies established in that Member State, without any possibility for the taxpayer to show that a gift made to a body established in another Member State satisfies the requirements imposed by that legislation for the grant of such a benefit.
