Giving (euros) to the church and reducing your tax bill

 

The Spanish tax rules allow you to give one-off donations to charity or regular donations to charity and receive, at the end of the financial year, up to 75% of those donations back through a reduction in your tax bill.  You can reduce your Spanish tax bill by up to 10% using this method. 

 

You should ask the Treasurer for a certificate ‘certificado de donación’ to prove your charitable contributions have been made and you should fill out the Modelo 182.  If you are on the envelope scheme we may be able to record your weekly contributions to the church and provide a certificate at the end of the year to you.  If those contributions, say, are €20 per week, for 50 weeks that amounts to €1000 and the certificate returned with your tax form in April will reduce your tax bill by 75% of €150 and 30% of €850, which is €367.50.  (though you would have to be paying €3675 in tax anyway to have that reduction).  Of course, if you manage to do it, it would be wonderful if you felt able to donate some of that €367.50 back to the church! 

 

If you run a company and pay tax the reduction in corporate tax is up to 40%, with the same maximum 10% of taxes paid limit.
