CHY3 & 4 – Charity Tax Relief


Thanks to parishioners who have already begun to return their CHY 3 and 4 certificates.  We will post a second batch this week.


If you have contributed over €250 and do not receive a Certificate, please contact our Parish Office.


This Scheme is available to Charities who wish to claim back the tax on donations of any individual of over €250 to a Charity.


Donations from Parishioners are eligible for this scheme, and it means the Parish can claim 20% of the donation back.


Parishioners who use the Weekly envelopes or donate by Standing Order, where the total is over €250, will shortly receive a Claim form which will enable our Parish to apply for this tax back refund.


We will include CHY3 (Enduring Certificate) which covers application for refund of tax for five years and CHY4 (Annual Certificate).  You should chose whichever Certificate you are happy to complete, whether you wish to return a five year cert or complete one each year is entirely personal.


When you receive your Certificates, we would be very grateful if you could complete and sign your chosen Certificate and return it to the Parish Office.  Boxes will also be provided in both Churches for return of CHY forms.  Thank you in advance.
