80G Certificate: NGO and Tax Exemption

The government ever since 1967 has been allowing tax benefits on donations. And herein the 80G Certificate is critical for your NGO.

Just fill in the form on this page and our team will get back to you regarding your 80G certificate via email and/or phone.

Under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961, any amount that is contributed towards charity attracts the tax sop of deduction.

This means that when a prescribed amount is paid in the form of a donation to any Non-Profit Organization (NGO), the revenue authorities do not fasten any tax liability to the amount. However, there is a rider here.

The amount so being donated has to meet some criteria before it is considered eligible for deduction.

Donating for a Tax Exemption: Key Points

To begin with, contributions made only to those NGO’s which are registered with the tax authorities will be considered eligible under the Section 80G route.

(A list of approved charitable institutions, funds, trusts, societies and corporate bodies are every so often released by the Government. They can be accessed here).

So before you gleefully make a generous  contribution to let’s say, a political party or a philanthropic organization based abroad which is not mentioned in the list, you would be feeling sorry for yourself even though you may earned a lot many karmic points.

Now, in order to make sure that you as a contributor can avail the aforesaid deduction see to it that the said NGO fulfills the following particulars:

  • The bye-laws and the governing rules of the NGO restrict the operation of the income or assets only for charitable purposes.
  • Serving any particular religious community or caste should not be the only mandate of the NGO.
  • The NGO should not be secretly having any income which is not exempted generally, for instance business income. However, if it does, it should maintain separate books of accounts for the same and should not divert the charitable contributions for the purposes of such business.
  • All donations and expenditures by the NGO are regularly updated in its books of ledger.
  • The NGO holds a registration under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 or any corresponding law or as per Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956.

80G Certificate: Getting your NGO Registered

\"80G

Once you have seen to it that the above-mentioned requirements are met, you should now proceed to the all important task of having the get the 80G Certificate in order to bring the benefits into motion.

Firstly, have the NGO make an application to the Commissioner of Income Tax in triplicate along with (a) a copy of the income tax registration certificate; (b) copies of audited accounts from the time its foundations were laid or the last three years, whichever is less; (c) a detailed report of all its charitable activities since inception or three years, whichever is less.

While you are at it, stick to the cardinal rule while making donations.  The rule stipulates a qualifying limit on the amount so voluntarily contributed at 10% of the adjusted gross total income.

Now you would wonder what the “adjusted” prefix connotes. It is another way of meaning the gross total income reduced by exempted income, long term capital gains etc. Here, you might want it to leave it to the experts at jjassociatez for helping you compute the adjusted amount.
