    Corporate Tax Deductions

    Under the French Law of 1st August 2003 on donations, corporate patrons are eligible for tax benefits: A tax deduction equivalent to 60% of the value of the donation made, up to 0.5% of your company’s turnover before taxes. Your company can carry forward such deductions for up to five ‘taxable periods’, as long as they do not exceed the ceiling for such deductions in each taxable period.

    Skills or in-kind patronage is the donation of capital assets (equipment, furnishings…), materials, goods in trade, service delivery or provision of staff.

    Whatever the nature of your donation, you benefit from the same advantages.

    For instance:

    €2,000 donation = €1,200 tax deduction, final cost = €800
    €4,000 donation = €2,400 tax deduction, final cost = €1,600
    €6,000 donation = €3,600 tax deduction, final cost = €2,400

    As a not-for-profit organisation of general interest under the French law of 1901, the IMEC is authorized to issue tax receipts.
