Section 18A Status
South African donors to the AMS will receive a Section 18A tax certificate enabling them to claim a deduction from personal or corporate taxable income. Donor deductability applies to cash donations and donations in kind-such as goods and services. When you submit the receipt with your annual income tax return, you can get up to a a maximum deduction of 5% of your annual taxable income or R1 000 (whichever is greater). Nothing prevents a tax payer from donation amounts in excess of the amount stated, but they will not get a tax break for the amount unless it is greater than five percent of taxable income or R1 000.
In the case of substantial donations, we will arrange a hand over to publicise your donation to local press and acknowledge your donation via our AMS annual report, a link on our website and in our quarterly newsletter, which is distributed across South Africa.
