Your charity may not need to pay income tax, resident withholding tax (RWT) or deregistration tax even after it’s deregistered.

Income tax and RWT exemptions

Your organisation may be able to get other income tax and RWT exemptions if it is:

  • a sports club or society
  • a local or regional promotion body
  • a community housing provider
  • a not-for-profit organisation.

Contact us if you believe your organisation may qualify for any of the above, or any other, income tax or RWT exemption.
