The Revenue Commissioners have recognised St Breckan's GAA Club as an Approved Sports Body and thankfully our new dressing rooms have now also been recognised by them as an Approved Project for Tax Relief Purposes.
Our fantastic new dressing rooms extension, as well as the significant upgrades and improvements made to both the inside and outside of the old Sports Complex building have cost our club a total of €150,000.00. We have gratefully received half of this amount through government funding of €75,000.00 and we will be funding the other €75,0000.00, with a combination of a bank loan and our own funds, thanks to your continued loyal support of our annual Club Development Draw and Community Lotto.
We fully appreciate the extremely difficult financial challenges that many in our community now face, but the reality is that St Breckan's GAA Club, like all other GAA Clubs, are totally dependent on the support and generosity of our local community and fellow parishioners to survive. You have never let us down in this regard in the past!
With this in mind we would ask you, if you find yourself in a position to do so, to give serious consideration to supporting St Breckan's GAA Club by making a donation under this Tax Relief Scheme, whilst this rare opportunity is still available to us.
How does it work?
St Breckan's GAA Club can only benefit from donations that are €250.00 or more under this scheme, paid either in one go or in installments, once they are made during one financial year. Amounts of less than €250.00 do not attract any Tax Relief. The club would welcome donations of any amount of course, and the bigger the donation, the bigger the tax benefit will be to the club. This tax benefit is received by the club at absolutely no additional cost to you!! It is beneficial for us all to keep your hard earned taxes working for your local club in your community!!
A Donation of €250.00 made by a PAYE worker paying 40% Tax allows St Breckan's to claim an extra €162.00 from the Revenue Commissioners making their €250.00 donation worth a total of €412.00 to our club.
A Donation of €250.00 made by a PAYE worker paying 20% Tax allows St Breckan's to claim an extra €63.00 from the Revenue Commissioners making their €250.00 donation worth a total of €313.00 to our club.
A Donation of €250.00 by a self assessed Tax payer or a Company allows them to claim back 12.5% in Tax themselves.
