All donations to Seed Foundation South Africa are exempt from donations tax and qualify the donor for deductions from taxable income in accordance with the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962.
If you give more than R100 000 per annum, you will receive a Section 18A tax certificate enabling you to claim a deduction from personal or corporate taxable income. Tax certificates will be issued in March / April each year unless requested earlier. Donor deductibility applies to cash donations, bequests and donations of goods or services.
When you submit the receipt with your annual income tax return, you can get up to a maximum deduction of 10% of your annual taxable income or R1000 (whichever is greater). To read more about PBO and Section 18A criteria, go to the SARS website.
