ABOUT ARTS COUNCIL MALTA’S 150% TAX DEDUCTION ON DONATIONS TO CULTURE
During Budget 2016, Government announced a new measure to encourage further partnerships between Malta’s business community and the cultural sector. Through this measure, companies giving donations to eligible organisations, may claim the amount donated at 150% against the income for the year of assessment when the donation was made. The maximum tax deduction is capped at €50,000. This incentive came into effect as of 1st January 2016.
Who can apply as a donor?
This incentive is intended for Limited Liability Companies and those Partnerships that are registered to be treated as a company.
Who can be the beneficiary of an eligible donation?
The main beneficiaries are intended to be not-for-profit Cultural Organisations*, Public Cultural Organisations, Arts Council Malta and other organisations as may be listed in the incentive guidelines.
What is a not-for-profit cultural organisation?
A not-for-profit cultural organisation is a registered Voluntary Organisation (VO) or Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) that uses its surplus revenues to further achieve its purpose or mission, rather than distributing its surplus income to the organisation’s shareholders (or equivalents) as profit or dividends. For the purpose of this tax deduction, beneficiaries listed as a not-for-profit cultural organisation must also be registered with the Commissioner Voluntary Organisations. They must be active and operating in the cultural sector with activities in any of the categories listed in the Arts Council Malta Act.
* Blitz is a not-for-profit cultural organisation registered with the Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations Malta since 2015 (VO/1052).
