What it means to be registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO)
SANZAF is registered as a Section 18A Public Benefit Organisation (PBO number 930001714), which means that any gratuitous cash or in kind donation made to SANZAF for the undertaking of qualifying public benefit activities within South Africa can be claimed as an income tax deduction by the donor.
As a result of this registration, SANZAF is authorized by SARS to issue its donors with a Section 18A tax certificate/receipt upon request. This will allow the donor to claim their donations as a tax deduction. In this way, as a donor, you are able to assist SANZAF help those displaced from their businesses and homes and also obtain a tax benefit in doing so.
How does it work?
Donors can obtain a tax deduction (limited to 10% of their taxable income in a fiscal year) in respect of the total donations made to approved organisations such as SANZAF. In order to do so the donation has to be supported by a receipt from SANZAF.
As an example, if a donor earns R100 000 taxable income per annum and during that year had donated R10 000 to SANZAF then the donor qualifies for a tax deduction of R10 000 from their total taxable income. This means that in this example, the donor would not have to pay tax on R100 000 (total taxable income for the year) but rather R90 000 (R100 000 – donation of R10 000) for that year. This allows the donor to claim their donation of R10 000 as a tax deduction.
In this way, you are able not only to assist SANZAF to #GiveHope but also claim a tax benefit for your contributions.
