To our Donors
Since 2008, “Huis Oase” has been providing a home for the elderly who only receive a state pension and have nowhere else to go. All of their physical and spiritual needs are met and they are taken care of in a homely atmosphere.
Unfortunately their monthly contribution for the upkeep of “Huis Oase” is not sufficient. A promise was made to the Lord that the residents will never be sent out to “collect” money, and therefore fundraising is necessary to help meet the monthly budget. If you are in a position to help make a difference it will be greatly appreciated. (See our details below)
Thank you for your interest and care in helping to make a positive difference.
“Huis Oase” bied sedert 2008 huisvesting aan bejaardes wat slegs ‘n staatspensioen ontvang en geen ander heenkome het nie. Daar word, in ‘n huislike atmosfeer, na hul fisiese en geestelike behoeftes omgesien.Omdat die inwoners se maandelikse bydrae nie voldoende is nie, en omdat daar ‘n belofte aan die Here gemaak is dat die inwoners nooit op straat sal staan en kollekteer nie, moet daar fondsinsameling-projekte aangepak word om die begroting te help klop.
Indien U kan help om ‘n verskil te maak sal dit opreg waardeer word. (Sien ons besonderhede hieronder).
Dankie vir u belangstelling en omgee om ‘n positiewe verskil te maak.
Tax Incentives to Donors
Section 18A entitles a taxpayer (individual, company, close corporation or trust) to deduct annually donations to certain public benefit organizations not exceeding 5% of taxable income. The “taxable income” for this purpose is the donors’ taxable income as calculated before allowing the deduction for medical expenses and the deduction of the donation.
Please provide us with your details so we can give you a S18a receipt
Examples of Incentives to Donors
An individual with an annual taxable income of R280 000 can donate a maximum of R14 000 to a S18A organisation and claim this donation as a deduction on his personal income tax return. This translates to an effective out-of-pocket expense of R8 480 or 60% of the amount donated.
A company with an annual taxable income of R1000 000 can donate a maximum of R50 000 to a S18A organisation and claim this donation as a deduction on the company’s corporate tax return. This translates to an effective out-of-pocket expense of R35 000 or 70% of the amount donated.
What details must be put on the section 18A receipt?
A taxpayer will only be allowed to claim a deduction for a donation to a section 18A approved organisation if it is supported by a receipt issued by the organisation. The receipt issued by the organisation must include the following details:
The reference number of the organisation issued to it by the Commissioner for purposes of section 18A;
The date of the receipt of the donation;
The name and address of the organisation issuing the receipt to which enquiries may be directed;
The name and address of the donor;
The amount or nature of the donation if not in cash;
Certification that the receipt is issued for the purpose of section 18A and that the donation will be used exclusively for the activities which are approved for section 18A purposes;
The receipt must be issued in the year when the donation is received by the organisation approved for purposes of section 18A.
