Matched & Tax Effective Giving
Some companies are willing to match what a member of staff has managed to raise through sponsorship. If your company operates a matching gift scheme we can provide you with any necessary information or fill in any forms required. A company is able to claim tax back from donations above €250.00 e.g. ABC Ltd makes a company donation of €250 to FirstLight and receives a receipt. ABC Ltd can then claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense. ABC Ltd pays corporation tax at 20% so their corporation tax bill is reduced by €250×20%=€50]

If you would like to discuss how we could partner or the support we could provide to a Charity of the Year, we would be thrilled to present a more detailed plan on how your staff, clients and customers can come together to support the FirstLight
