The NSRI is a registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO File No 13/11/18/28) which has been approved for purposes of section 18A(1)(a) of the Act and donations to the organisation are tax deductible in terms of and subject to the limitations prescribed in section 18A of the Income Tax Act.
The deductible portion of the donation is capped at 10% of the taxable income of the donor. With donor companies, an excess donation may be rolled over as a deductible donation in the subsequent year of tax assessment.
The tax deduction only applies to donations that are voluntary, gratuitous gifts given out of generosity, without reciprocal obligations or the opportunity of personal benefit for the donor e.g. an entry into a golf day or any other competition.
Financial donations and in-kind donations are tax-deductible however the donation of services or second-hand goods are not. To find out if your donation will be tax deductible read Clause 10 of the SARS Basic Guide to Section 18A Approval
A donation to the NSRI can attract BEE points under the SED category (code 500).
