Tax Efficient Giving

Give more with Charity Tax relief!

With your help, MQI can claim a 45% tax refund from Revenue on donations from supporters who give €250 or more in any given year. This additional €113 or more is enough to provide 17 nourishing meals to those who are homeless!  All you have to do is complete the form below: 

How Tax Efficient Giving works

A monthly gift of €21 or more for 12 months (€252 or more in one calendar year), or a single gift of €250 or more to MQI supplemented with a signed and returned tax form, could be worth €365 or higher to MQI. With an eligible gift and a returned form, you can free additional funds from Revenue worth 45% of your donation for MQI. 

 

We automatically send tax forms to donors who gave €250 or more in the previous year. If you haven’t received yours, you can now complete and electronically submit a form online. You can also call 01 524 0139 to speak with Elizabeth and she will post a form out to you.

Your donations are eligible for additional tax support through your completed form if : 

  • you gave money or shares worth €250 or more in a given year to this charity (MQI) while resident in Ireland,
  • you paid income tax during the year in question,
  • or you are retired and have a pension, investment or assets that you pay income or capital gains tax on,
  • or you are self-employed/ self assessed,
  • or you are jointly assessed for tax with your tax paying spouse.

When you return a CHY3 form to a charity, you will not have to complete another CHY3 for that charity for 5 years from the year you gave an eligible gift. During the five year period, all yearly gifts over €250 could be used to claim additional funds from Revenue- This is tax efficient giving! 

To sign an online CHY3 form, please click here. If you would prefer to complete a CHY4 form annually instead, please click here. You can complete and submit the online form above or print out a form and send the completed scanned forms to elizabeth.kalu@mqi.ie or post to Merchants Quay Ireland, P.O. Box 11958, FREEPOST F3736, Dublin 8.

So please, complete and return your tax form today! By returning a tax form, you may have freed additional funds from Revenue that will help more men and women here at Merchants Quay Ireland.

FAQs

Q: Will MQI getting a tax rebate on my donations affect the tax I pay?

A: No, it won’t cost you anything or affect your tax status or how much you pay in tax.

Q: Can I do this for other charities as well?

A: Yes! You can do it for as many charities as you want as long you have donated more than €250 in a year to that charity.

Your Privacy
When you return the signed form to MQI, we forward the donation amount for the tax year(s) along with your PPS number to the Revenue commissioners. We store your tax form information securely only for the purpose of obtaining tax rebates. Revenue pays the tax relief to MQI when satisfied that you have paid at least the donation amount in income tax. We does not receive any information on individual taxpayers.
