How It Works
The Government-approved tax back scheme allows charities like Breast Cancer Ireland to claim 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you, our donor. All you need to do is sign and return a CHY3 form so we can claim the tax back from the Revenue Commissioners.
The form is valid for 5 years (unless you choose to cancel it), which helps lower our admin costs allowing for greater impact in the work we do.
With this scheme we have the potential to unlock much needed income which could fund life-saving cancer research as well as our education and awareness programmes.
In order for us to claim tax back on your donations, you must have donated €250 or more to Breast Cancer Ireland within one year, in the last four years (2016-2020)
You can make your donation as a once-off donation or by instalments. For example, a monthly gift of €21 over 12 months totals €252, and qualifies for the tax back scheme. This only applies to personal gifts, and not to funds raised through sponsorship.
It doesn’t matter if you’re PAYE or self-assessed. Since 2013, self-assessed tax payers can no longer claim tax back on charitable donations – only the charity can make this claim from Revenue.
We can claim 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you. That’s an additional €112.25 on top of your €250 donation.
