According to the last Notice of Exemption by the Tax Office Hamburg, issued on June 8th 2017 (Steuerbescheid/ Freistellungsbescheid 2013 bis 2015 vom 08.06.2017 des Finanzamts Hamburg-Nord – 17 – (Tax Number) St.Nr.: 17/443/06031) Friends of Britain e.V. is recognized as non-profit and is authorized to issue tax certificates for donations given to the organization with the purpose of promoting and supporting public health, youth and social welfare and intercultural understanding (German Tax Code: § 52 Abs. 2 Satz 1 Nr. 3, 4, 9 und 13 AO).
Tax deduction entitlement of donations, for your information:
For donations of up to €200 the German tax office accepts an account statement of the transfer as official donation receipt. This relieves non-profit organizations like ours from excessive administrative efforts and extra costs (e.g. for postage). However, if requested we are happy to provide you with a receipt for donations from €100 upward. Your address is required for issuing the receipt, please provide it alongside your transfer.
