Tax Relief

Use paid tax to benefit Billys' World Ireland at no extra cost to you!

No extra cost to you – but helps us!

You can help Billy's World Ireland reclaim extra funds from the Revenue Commissioners by filling in and returning a Tax Relief Form (CHY2 Cert). This funding will be a huge benefit to the project and help it come into reality so much quicker.

    How does it work and who can claim?
  • If you are a PAYE tax payer, and have donated €250 or more to Billy's World Ireland during the tax year, Billy's World can reclaim the tax paid on your donation. This is only for personal donations you have made and not on any money raised through sponsorship.
  • Is this information confidential?
  • Of course. All personal details are confidential to Billy's World Ireland and the Revenue Commissioners. The information is used for the tax claim and nothing else.
  • How do I do this?
  • When you make a donation of €250 or over please let us know that you will be interested in availing of the reclaim for Billy's World - Then just get the CHY2 form by clicking here and printing it. Then just complete it and return it us and we will do the rest! Thank you.
  • Corporate Donations and Self Assessed
  • If you are self-assessed or a corporation, you can reclaim the tax paid on your donation. Get a copy of your donation history from us and attach it to your Annual Tax Return Form/Corporation Tax Form. If you wish, you can then donate some of the reclaimed money to Billy's World Ireland.
