Charity Tax Back Facts

  • Members of the public cannot claim charity tax back. If the charity does not claim the tax back, it simply stays with Revenue permanently.
  • The charity tax claim has no implication on your own annual taxes.
  • As of January 2013, if you are self-assessed for tax, charities can now claim back tax on donations made by self-assessed individuals.
  • Your details are confidential to Acuity Foundation Ireland and the Revenue Commissioners.
  • Acuity Foundation Ireland can only claim tax back on donations. We cannot claim tax on funds you have raised through sponsorship or events.
  • If you prefer, we can post a form to you. Just contact us to let us know.
  • If you are a company, treat your donation(s) as a normal business expense, deductible at the appropriate rate of corporation tax. If you need us to resend a donation receipt or if you require further information, please get in touch with us.
