FAQ: How do I calculate my allowable deductions in respect of donations for the 2020/21 tax year, to the Solidarity fund and donations made to other approved funds?

The tax-deductible limit for donations, currently 10 per cent of taxable income, has been increased with an additional 10 per cent in respect of donations in cash or of property in kind donated and actually paid or transferred to the Solidarity Fund from April 2020 to September 2020 of the donor to the Solidarity Fund.  There will, thus, be a limit of 10 per cent for any qualifying donations and an additional 10 per cent for donations to the Solidarity Fund.

Below is a table reflecting an example of the calculations based on taxable income of R100 000:

Taxable Income 4011 Donation 4055 Solidarity Fund Donation Allowable deduction for code 4011 Allowable deduction for code 4055 Allowable deduction for codes 4011+ 4055 Carry Over on code  4011
