Payroll Giving
 
Payroll giving, where offered by your employer, gives you the opportunity to donate to Inland Revenue-approved donee organisations direct from your pay and receive immediate tax credits that reduce your PAYE payable (you don’t need to wait until the end of the year to receive your tax credits). The Selwyn Foundation is an approved donee organisation. 
 
Tax credits for payroll donations are calculated at 33.33 cents for each dollar donated, which is deducted from your PAYE.
 
You can contribute any amount, no matter how small, with the whole refund process now much simpler and automatic. Please make a request to your HR department.

Donate your tax rebate directly to The Selwyn Foundation
 
You can claim back 33.33% of all donations to The Selwyn Foundation and other eligible charities, right up to the total value of their taxable income. If you don’t normally claim your rebate, or if you would like to increase your donation without having to make a payment, please consider transferring your rebate to the Foundation.
 
To claim a tax rebate, you will need to fill in an IR526 form, which you can print from the IRD website http://www.ird.govt.nz/forms-guides/number/forms-500-599/ir526-form-claim-rebate.html or phone the IRD on 0800 257 733 to request one.
 
How do I transfer my tax rebate to The Selwyn Foundation?
 
1. Fill in the IR526 form
2. In BOX 7 of this form, enter the Foundation’s IRD number: 13 518 637
3. Under ‘Name of person receiving the tax credit’, write “The Selwyn Foundation”
4. In BOX 8, choose an amount to transfer (it can be all or part of the rebate)
5. Enter the year
6. Staple your receipts to the back of the form
7. Send your competed IR526 form with receipts to the Inland Revenue.
 
The rebate will be transferred to the Foundation’s IRD number and then paid out to our bank account, helping us to extend our mission to provide quality services not only to the residents within our retirement villages and aged care facilities, but also to older people within the community at large.
 
We can provide you with a tax deductible receipt for the rebate you transfer to the Foundation, so you can claim a further rebate on this amount next year. Email us at myrener@selwyncare.org.nz or phone 09 845 0838 with: your name, IRD number, address and the amount transferred (the Inland Revenue do not provide us with your name and address details). We will receipt these funds in your name when they arrive, enabling you to claim a further tax credit next year.
