Taxback in the Republic of Ireland

The charity tax back scheme means that donations of €250 or more are potentially worth an additional 44.9% to the charity. This refund can only be claimed by charitable organisations and it is additional income which increased Trócaire’s overall public income by close to €1.7m over the past year.

The refund can be obtained on behalf of PAYE and Self-Assessed supporters.

Once signed, the enduring tax relief form lasts for 5 years. This means that you only need to fill out the form once every 5 years, which reduces our admin costs, allowing for greater impact in the work we do with communities in the developing world.

See the total value of your donation to Trócaire when you fill out the tax relief form:

If you donated €250 or more to Trócaire in 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016, you can download the easy-to-complete tax relief form here. If we don't receive a completed form from you, we will send you one by post in April 2017 (CHY3 Revenue Form).

Taxback in Northern Ireland

If you are a UK taxpayer, for every £1 you donate, Trócaire will receive an additional 25p from HMRC.  All you need to do is Complete a Gift Aid Declaration. You only need to complete the Declaration once, as it will cover any and all future donations you make. There is no minimum amount you need to donate - the only requirement is that you are a UK taxpayer. It’s that simple.
