Tindale Marine Research Charitable Trust is a New Zealand registered charity with full donee status. This means that for individuals and corporates (companies), for any donations made to this Trust directly or via our givealittle page you are eligible for tax credits as described below.
Individuals can claim a 33.33% tax credit for all donations over $5.00 they make to these approved donees. A tax credit reduces the amount of tax you have to pay. The total tax credits an individual can claim is capped at one third of their total taxable income. Remember to keep your valid donation reciepts so you or your accountant can complete an IR526 Tax credit claim form and forward to IRD.
Companies can claim tax deductions for all donations made to an approved Donee providing their claim does not exceed their total annual income. A tax deduction is a reduction in the amount of taxable income. Companies can claim this deduction using the IR4 form.
You can only claim donation tax credits within a period of four years following the year in which the gift was made.
All donations recieved go straight to the research projects where it is needed. This past year all donations went towards topping up tagging kits and replacement research tags for anglers in the Inshore Fish tagging program
