New Tax Legislation – Great News for Charitable Organisations !

Changes in the charity tax back scheme in 2013 means that donations of €250 or more are potentially worth an additional 44.9% to our charity with no additional cost to you. So, we are asking our supporters to download the form below, take two minutes to complete it, sign it and return to us so we can make your already generous donation go even further!

So what has changed?

The tax refund can now be obtained, by us on behalf of any PAYE and / Or Self-Assessed supporter.

Once signed, the new enduring tax relief form lasts for 5 years. This means that you only need to fill out the form once every 5 years, which reduces our admin costs, allowing for greater impact of your donation in the work we do.
