Charities Institute of Ireland calls for change in charity tax regulations

first_imgCharities Institute of Ireland calls for change in charity tax regulations The Charities Institute of Ireland (Cii) is calling for the €250 limit for tax relief on charitable donations to be reduced to €100 as part of its submission for the next budget.Cii say such a reduction will incentivise and encourage more donations. The submission in relation to the €250 threshold is one of a number of suggestions contained in Cii’s budget proposals designed to increase funding to the charitable sector.Cii says it is working with the Revenue on the Charitable Donation Scheme (CDS) to simplify its operation and administration. Cii and Revenue plan to examine the CDS for more digital processes to make the scheme more transparent and efficient for both the Revenue and charities.A digitalised scheme would allow for one off donations to be eligible for tax relief. This, say Cii, would be of particular benefit for crisis campaigns.Cii is also proposing additional Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT) relief to encourage charitable donations in wills.As a way to ease the burden of VAT for charities, the budget submission is asking the Minister to increase the VAT compensation allowance for charities to be increased from €5 million to €20 million.The Charities Institute of Ireland was formed in 2016 following a merger of the Irish Charity Tax Reform Group and Fundraising Ireland. Cii’s role is to support its membership through advocacy, education and communication.  184 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Commodore Hijmans and his staff have led this NATO flotilla for the past year.The multinational flotilla SNMG2 forms the maritime component of the NATO Response Force. This unit, which is on standby at all times, allows the Alliance to respond quickly and flexibly to security situations. The mainly Dutch staff has spent almost a year at sea, supported by 3 Dutch flagships.Ocean ShieldFor the last six-and-a-half months, the commodore and his staff have led NATO’s Ocean Shield counterpiracy mission. In that period, the multinational flotilla consisting of American, Danish, Turkish and Dutch ships, has been very successful in its efforts to counter piracy. Hijmans handed over command of this operation earlier this week.Results“In the past period we have rescued more than 100 hostages and apprehended around 170 pirates, several of whom have been handed over for prosecution. We disabled more than 30 pirate ships and seized hundreds of weapons”, said Hijmans during the change of command. “At this moment there are still 17 ships carrying around 400 innocent crew members being held hostage under very difficult conditions. We must do everything in our power to prevent any more ships from being hijacked.” During the ceremony, the staff of SNMG2 received the NATO medal for participation in Active Endeavour.
