Section 18A Status

Why make a charitable donation to an 18A registered charity (also known as as a Public Benefit organization PBO)?

What does Section 18A status mean?

Section 18A enables you, the taxpayer, who has made a donation to your charity to claim a tax deduction up to a certain limit. Donors to any NPO who has PBO status are entitled to deduct the total value of their donations, up to a limit of 10% of your taxable income for that tax year. In order to claim a tax deduction, you must hold a section 18A certificate which will be issued by the NPO to you.

Aanhou-Wen has a PBO status and can issue a Section 18A Certificate.

Terms and conditions to be aware of?

  • The donation must be bona fide, meaning that nothing can be expected to be given in return for the donation
  • The original certificate must be kept in a safe place and made available to SARS if requested.
  • The Section 18A certificate must have the correct details of the taxpayer
  • A taxpayer may not claim both BEE points and a Section 18A tax deduction

How does the Section 18A tax benefit work?

Taxpayers deduct their donations from their taxable income, lowering the total tax due. The reduction depends on your marginal tax rate e.g. If your marginal tax rate is 35%, a donation of R1 000 will result in a reduction of R350 in tax payable.
