Tax Benefits

Making a donation to the Friends of CODART Foundation often means you can benefit directly from tax advantages provided for in your country of residence.

The Netherlands

The Dutch Tax Administration has designated CODART as an ‘institution for general benefit’ (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling [ANBI]). Accordingly, gifts may be deducted from income and corporate tax. The tax advantage can add up to 78% of the gift. For more information please contact the CODART bureau or read the information below in Dutch.

In Dutch: informatie over de Geefwet

Op giften aan culturele ANBI’s is door middel van de nieuwe Geefwet sinds 1 januari 2012 (en in principe tot eind 2018) een zogeheten multiplier van toepassing. Dit betekent dat u uw gift mag vermenigvuldigen met 1.25 en zo een kwart meer kunt aftrekken dan u eigenlijk schenkt. De multiplier mag gebruikt worden voor jaarlijkse giften tot aan 5000 euro. Voor eenmalige giften geldt een aftrekdrempel van 1% (en minimaal € 60) en een plafond van 10% van het verzamelinkomen. Een periodieke schenking levert het meeste voordeel op. Indien u bijvoorbeeld 1000 euro per jaar schenkt en dat gedurende vijf jaar, kunt u door middel van de multiplier 1.250 euro als aftrekpost noteren. U hoeft hiervoor niet langer gebruik te maken van een notariële akte. Een schriftelijke overeenkomst tussen beide partijen volstaat. Meer informatie hierover vindt u via deze link:
