Austrian Law: Spenden an CERN absetzbar?


#1

Sorry for the German language here.

Sind die Spenden an das CERN bez. KiCad als Betriebsausgabe absetzbar?

LG, Karl

Sorry for my english reply;

Thats a question for your tax advisor. It depends on your local tax code and possibly how you book the expense. Are you thinking about donating a cool 1million?

Dear Karl,

A donation to KiCad via the CERN & Society Foundation is tax deductible but cannot be considered a payment for a service, if this is what you were asking.
If you want to benefit from the tax reduction policy from your country of residence, you can donate to the CERN & Society Foundation through the Transnational Giving Europe network: http://www.transnationalgiving.eu/donate
If they won’t give you the option to earmark the donation to KiCad, then contact us at partnerships.fundraising@cern.ch, and we will do it for you.

Cheers, Benedetta

Thank you very much. We will have a look into that!
[EDIT]: seems, that Austria is still not supported as a country for donors.
