Tax Measure to Promote Donations made to National Vaccine Institute by EY
EY Corporate Services Limited has kindly shared the following information regarding Tax measures to promote donations made to National Vaccine Institute.
On 5 May 2021, the cabinet approved a draft Royal Decree issued under the Revenue Code announcing a tax measure to promote donations to the National Vaccine Institute.
- Personal income taxpayers can claim deductions (cash) equal to one time the actual amount of donations made to the National Vaccine Institute (monetary donations only). However, the total donation may not exceed 10% of net assessable income.
- Corporate income taxpayers can claim deductions (cash or assets) equal to one time the actual amount of donations made to the National Vaccine Institute in the form of money or assets. However, the total donation may not exceed 2% of net taxable profits before deducting expenses incurred for public charity, public benefit and education or sports.
- VAT exemption is granted for a VAT registrant making donations of assets to the National Vaccine Institute to support research, development, production and distribution of vaccines.
It is important to note that these tax measures are subject to certain conditions and limitations, so individuals and businesses who wish to make donations should consult with their tax advisor to ensure that they are eligible for the deductions and exemptions.
The tax measure applies to donations made through the e-Donation system of the Revenue Department between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2023.
