Tax Incentives for Donations

Tax Benefit for Age Action

Tax relief is available on donations of €250 or more in any one tax year to eligible charities from both individual and corporate donors. For individuals, the relief is a blended rate of 31% and for corporate entities it is the marginal rate, normally 12.5%.

Individual Donors (PAYE Taxpayers)

You can help Age Action receive further donations through the tax system:

  • If you donate €250 or more (in a single tax year)
  • You subscribe to planned monthly donations of €21 or more (in a single tax year)
  • Send your name and address and we will send you a form to sign which allows us to claim the tax back. Alternatively download the CHY4 form by clicking here and send it to us with your donation.

Corporate Donors (Tax Benefit for You)

Companies who donate to Age Action can also avail of tax relief on their donation.

How It Works

  • After making a donation, Age Action will send a receipt with your thank you letter.
  • The company can claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense.
  • The company pays corporation tax at 12.5% so their corporation tax bill is reduced by €250×12.5%=€31.

Further Information

Please contact Age Action if you are intending to make a donation through planned monthly giving or amounts of €250 or over, it will mean your donation goes further and provide additional funding for our services. It will also ensure that we can thank you in a timely fashion and send updates on how donations like yours are making a difference.

Thank you.

STOP67 calls for inclusion of advocates for women and older people on Pensions Commission

(13 November) The STOP67 Coalition has expressed its disappointment at the failure of the Government to appoint sufficient members to the Pensions Commission who reflect the interests of those most affected by the proposed pension age increase and, in particular, organisations representing women and older people. The Coalition includes the National Women’s Council (NWC), SIPTU, Age Action and Active Retirement Ireland.

In a letter to An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, the Coalition said it was “shocked and surprised” that the Commission does not include the representatives of so many of those directly affected by the proposed pension age increase. This followed the announcement by the Government of the members of the Commission, which is due to assess whether the pension age should be increased to 67 years and to set out a future plan for the pension system.
