ABOUT YOUR TAX CERTIFICATE

We issue Section 18A Tax Certificates throughout the year. 

Provided we have all the information required for the certificate, we aim to issue the certificate via email within 2 weeks of receiving the gift in our bank account. ​

It is important for us you to provide you with a correct Section 18A tax certificate. Please ensure that you insert the correct project reference code, provided by UJ, on your payment and tax certificate info form. 


PLEASE HELP US WITH THE FOLLOWING REGARDING YOUR TAX CERTIFICATE
 

WHAT: Insert the correct project name and reference code, provided by UJ, on your payment and tax certificate information form.

Without the correct reference, the University will unfortunately not be able to allocate your gift to where you want it to go. We won’t be able to distinguish it from the thousands of other transactions on our bank account. In that case, the funds would unfortunately have to be retained in a holding account.
