Tax-deductible donations to empower South Africans with diabetes

It’s nearly the end of the tax year! Which might not mean much to you, but means that some people and companies are looking for tax-deductible donations to offset their tax liability. Here’s how Sweet Life can help.

Tax-deductible donations

Sweet Life is a PBO, which means we can issue Section 18A certificates for any donations made to us. These certificates allow you to donate up to 10% of your taxable income, reducing that taxable income which leads to less tax being paid.

Section 18A certificates mean that taxpayers donating to a PBO can claim a tax deduction to the value of the donation made but limited to no more than 10% of the taxpayer’s taxable income before taking this deduction into account.

Any donations to Sweet Life can reduce tax liability by potentially downgrading your tax threshold percentage, as well as reducing your taxable income due to the donation.
