Is my giving tax exempted?

Yayasan Generasi Gemilang (GG) is a non-profit organization under sub-section 44(6) of Income Tax Act 1967. We have been granted tax exemption status effective June 1, 2020. Therefore, we’re pleased to inform you that all cash donations from June 1, 2020 onwards will be tax exempted. Do note that this is only applicable to donors or donor entities that file taxes with “Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN)”, the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia.

Is there minimum amount of donation required for me to be eligible for tax exemption?

No. There is no minimum amount of donation required to be eligible for tax exemption. However, for aggregate donations of RM20,000 and above made in a year, we are required to declare to “Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri (LHDN)”.

What information do you need from me if I want to get a tax-exempt receipt for donation?

Individual donors/Corporate organisations are required to email finance@gengemilang.org and provide complete information of the following details below in order to obtain an official tax exemption receipt from the organisation.

According to the guidelines for Approval of Director General of Inland Revenue under sub-section 44(6) of the Income Tax Act 1967, we are unable to issue tax exemption receipts to donors who do not provide the required personal information.

When will I receive my Tax Exemption Receipt?

Physical TER will be sent out via normal mail once every 6 months. If your donation is RM10 and below, you may request to self-collect the physical TER from GG’s office at a scheduled time.
