What it means to be registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO)

A Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) is any welfare, religious or cultural body, private school, bursary fund or charitable trust that has been approved by SARS. The PBO's legal status can take the form of either a Trust, a section 21 Company or an Association of Persons. SANZAF is registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO – 930001714). The benefit to the donor is that any cash donation that is made to SANZAF can be claimed back from SARS. By donating to a tax exempt body the donor benefits from paying the 10% Donations Tax and Income Tax on Donations to certain PBO's. As an example, for a cash donation of R10, 000, an amount of R1,000 can be claimed back from SARS. As a result of its registration as a PBO, SANZAF is authorized by SARS to issue its contributors or donors with a Section 18A Tax certificate upon request. This will allow them to claim their 10% donations tax rebate. In this way, you are able not only to assist SANZAF help those displaced from their businesses and homes but also other relief organisations in South Africa.
