New Give Act
The New Give Act has been in force since 1 January 2012. The Ministry of Finance wants to further stimulate the giving behavior of individuals and companies through a number of fiscal measures. Donating to Opera Zuid is now even more attractive. Your extra tax benefit can offer young talents an opportunity to develop and move on to international stages. We are happy to explain the most important measures.

125% multiplier
Opera zuid is an ANBI (Public Benefit Organization). This ABNI statement makes it possible for your donation to Opera Zuid to be deductible from your income with a multiplier of 125%. This means that a donation of € 1,000 for € 1,250 is deductible from your threshold income. In your income tax return (for 2012 up to and including 2016) you may therefore multiply the donated amount by 1.25.
This measure applies to a maximum donation of € 5,000 per year. This means that you can deduct a maximum of € 6,250 per year. If you want to donate more than € 5,000, the multiplier applies to € 5,000 and the normal deduction of 100% applies to the remaining amount of your gift.

Corporate tax donations expanded
The ANBI statement from Opera Zuid makes donations from your NC, BV, foundation or association fiscally attractive. Every donation is deductible from the profit and a multiplier of 150% applies up to a maximum donation of € 5,000 per year. This means that a gift of € 1,000 for € 1,5000 is deductible from the profit. In your corporate income tax return (for 2012 up to and including 2016) you can therefore multiply the donated amount by 1.5. Here too it applies that if you want to donate more than € 5,000, the multiplier applies to € 5,000 that the normal deduction of 100% applies to the remaining amount.
Previously, the total of deductible gifts by your NV, BV, foundation or association was 10% of the taxable profit. From 2012 this has been increased to 50% of the taxable profit, whereby a maximum of € 100,000 applies.

Optimal donation? Donate periodically!
A periodic donation of at least 5 years offers you the opportunity to gain optimum benefit from the Grant Act and the multiplier. This is because periodic donations have no thresholds and ceilings and are fully deductible from income tax. Periodic donations are recorded by means of a notarial deed.
