Did you know that you can increase your donation at no extra cost? If you donated €250 or more in a given year we could claim an extra 45% of that donation in tax relief.
This simple step takes just a moment of your time and nothing else. Unlocking this extra funding is vital to the people who rely on our services, and for the many more we hope to assist in the coming years.

Tax relief legislation
The Charity Tax Back scheme introduced in 2013 means that donations of €250 or more are potentially worth an additional 45% to us, at no cost to the donor. The refund can be obtained on behalf of PAYE and Self Assessed donors. If you are not PAYE or Self Assessed unfortunately we cannot claim tax back on your donations.
Once the form is signed and sent to us, we can then apply to Revenue for the tax refund. You only need to fill out the form once every five years, which reduces our admin costs allowing for greater impact in the work we do nationwide.
Signing this form does not commit you to pay anything – it simply enables us to claim a 45% tax relief on your donations. That means your gift of €250 is actually worth €362 to us; €500 is worth €724 and €1,000 is worth €1,449! For further information on this scheme, you can refer to this guide on the Revenue Commissioner’s website or alternatively you can contact a member of staff at our headquarters and we will be happy to assist you with any queries.
Just imagine how much we could do if every Irish Guide Dogs supporter signed this form. So don’t hesitate – please send in your completed form today!
