ALL receipted donations over €250 received could be worth up to an extra €113 to the Society. Through the CHY Tax Effective Giving Scheme, Revenue allows charities to claim tax relief on all eligible* receipted donations over €250 made within one calendar year. Both PAYE and Self Assessed donors are included. All tax refunds received on foot of eligible CHY3 donations go back to your Conference.

Conferences can claim the tax on any receipted donations for 4 previous years including 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014. However these forms must be sent to Deborah Costello, National Office by Friday the 28th of September 2018 to be included in this year’s claim. Any forms received after that date will be included in the follow year’s claim. Where can I get CHY forms and information packs?

How to claim? To claim the tax relief on eligible receipted donations and increase the value of donations, whether you are a donor or an SVP Conference, just follow these easy steps: 1. Conference Treasurer Record details of each donation received (monthly, annual or other) by donor name in the Treasurer Ledger/Agresso. Records of each donation must be maintained as Revenue may ask to see them. Send all donors whose donation(s) amount to €250 or more in one year a CHY3 cert and return envelope with their thank you letter/receipt.

1. Donors Your Conference or Regional Office will send you the CHY3 form. 2. SVP Conferences To request more CHY3 certs, freepost envelopes, letter templates or queries simply call Deborah Costello on 01-8848229 or email deborah@svp.ie *Donations from Ltd Companies are not included in CHY3 Tax Effective Giving Scheme

2. Donors If you are a donor to SVP and you receive a CHY3 cert, please know that you only need to sign the form once and return to National Office in the freepost envelope provided. As this is an enduring cert, it cover any future donations received for 5 years. At the end of the 5 years SVP will contact you to complete a new cert. 3. National Office National Office then process the claim directly with Revenue and will return eligible funds directly to the local Conference.
