Tax Efficient Giving
How Charity Tax back Works
Give again for free…all that’s required is a few moments of your time.
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. For example, if you pay 12 monthly payments of €21 = €252, that could be worth €365 to MQI with tax relief. To enable to claim this relief, all you need do is complete a simple form that covers any year in which you donate €250+ and the good news is if you fill the form, you will not have to complete it again for 5 years.
We automatically send tax forms to donors who gave €250+ in the previous year. If you haven’t received yours please click here to download your tax form or call 01 524 0139 to speak to Deirdre and she will send one out to you. For more information from Revenue please click here.

Will MQI getting a tax rebate on my donations affect the tax I pay?
No, it won’t cost you anything or affect your tax status or how much you pay in tax.
Can I do this for other charities as well?
Yes! You can do it for as many charities as you want as long you have donated more than €250 in a year. However, the tax relief that charities receive be more than the tax you paid, if you paid less Revenue will issue the tax relief to charities on a first come first served basis.
Your not a taxpayer but your spouse is – can MQI claim tax relief on the donations?
Yes, if you’re jointly assessed for tax.
I’m not employed or I’m on a pension?
If you have pension, investments or any other asset that you pay either income tax or capital gains tax, it’s eligible for tax relief.
I’m self-employed/self-assessed, can’t I get the tax relief?
Since the 1st of January 2013, self-assessed and PAYE taxpayers are treated the same, all the tax relief goes to charity, not the taxpayer.
In the case of corporate donations, the company can claim a deduction as if it were a trading expense.
