Acquiring your Tax Certificate
This means that a taxpayer (individual, trust or company) making a bona fide donation to a section 18A approved organisation is entitled to a deduction from the taxpayer’s taxable income.
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.

The main aim of this incentive is to encourage South African companies to invest in scientific or technological research and development.
