Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between the Enduring Certificate and an Annual Certificate?

Enduring certificate (5 years) simply enables Debra to claim tax relief if you donate €250+ in any of the five years covered by the form. It simplifies the tax relief process for both you the donor and us. It’s the most effective method for charities to claim the tax rebate.

Annual certificate (1 year) only allows us to claim tax relief for the year in which you made the donation. If you donate to the charity in any following year, you will need to complete the annual certificate form again.

How much is my tax rebate worth to Debra?

An extra 45% approx. on donations over €250. You can use this calculator to calculate the exact figure for your donation amount.

What if I support more than one charity?
There is no limit to the number of eligible charities that can claim tax relief when you give each of them over €250.
However, what charities are paid by Revenue cannot exceed the total tax you actually paid. If the tax you paid is less than the total being claimed by charities, Revenue will pay them on a first-come, first-served basis.
I do not like revealing my tax details
You are NOT required to provide any details of your income or tax paid. All that’s required is your signature and PPS number, which you can find on most tax/social welfare documents addressed to you.
Debra will retain this number securely and only for the purposes of obtaining tax rebates on your donations.
How does Debra obtain a tax rebate?
After the end of any financial year in which your donations total €250+, Debra will send you the relevant Forms (Enduring or Annual) to complete unless you already completed one for that period.
We will then claim the rebate. When Revenue are satisfied you paid at least that amount in tax, they will pay us.
Please send the completed form to us, not Revenue.
