Charities claiming a tax repayment

‚ÄčThe claim for the tax repayment must be made by the charity, not the person making the donation.

Donations made using the Jersey Gift Support scheme

To ensure your claim is processed quickly you should send your claim quarterly on a schedule which includes the following information:

  • name of the charity
  • tax identification number (TIN) of the charity
  • Jersey registered charity number 
  • donor's name
  • donor's tax identification number (TIN)
  • amount donated (net)
  • the gross amount of the payment (the net amount grossed up by 20p in the pound)
  • the amount of income tax deducted (the gross minus the net which equals the repayment due)
  • the total amount of your claim

Compliance audits

As part of its annual compliance programme, Revenue Jersey may undertake an audit of the claims made by a charity through online giving. It is essential therefore, that charities hold and maintain records that will validate the donations and claims made.

Deed of covenant donations

The original deeds of covenant must be sent to us, these will be authorised and returned to you. If there are a number of covenants made, these should be sent in batches to us (rather than individually).

To then make a claim for repayment of tax, you need to submit:

  • a completed and signed (by the donor) form R10(AP)
  • a reclaim schedule which provides a summary of the repayment claim
