Online giving launched in Jersey

Monday 16 May 14:17

The Taxes Office has been working with the Jersey Fundraising Forum to make it easier for people to make tax efficient lump sum donations to charities through online giving.

From 1 May 2016, Jersey charities that have the IT capability for online giving will automatically be able to claim the tax on donations in a much more streamlined and efficient manner. This initiative is part of the Taxes Office drive to move people and services online and supports the States wide digital strategy.

Minister for Treasury and Resources, Senator Alan Maclean, said: “Islanders are renowned for their charitable instincts and care for others. I am delighted that my department is leading the way in making it much easier for charities to access the tax benefits available for charitable giving.”

Melissa Nobrega Chair of the Jersey Fundraising Forum said: “With so many charities in such a small Island, fundraising is often challenging, so finding easy and effective ways to generate income are always welcomed.  This change of policy will give charities the impetus to not only look at their digital fundraising strategy, but make it easier and more valuable for people to donate online.  Allowing charities this simplified way of claiming tax back on online donations over £50 will save charities time and money, as well as giving the donor one less thing to do.”

The minimum lump sum donation for which tax can be claimed back is £50. So a donation of £50 allows the charity to claim an additional £12.50 back on that gift.
