      Thank you for your message! In essence, Section 18A allows a taxpayer, who has made a bona fide donation to a PBO (public benefit organisation) or certain other institutions, to claim a tax deduction subject to a limit. The 18A certificate is a form of proof of your donation to the organisation. This certificate should be available to you from the organisation or available to download on their website. On, your Section 18A certificate is available under your profile on the top right corner on the website.

      Hi Sonia

      Apologies for taking a while to reply to your question. Thank you for visiting! Firstly, you need to ensure that your organisation has Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) status as well as section 18A status. An organisation with only section PBO status may not issue section 18A receipts. Once you have confirmed that your organisation has PBO and section 18A status, you may draw up a donor receipt including the following details:

      I hope that’s helpful!

      Regards, Simone
