The Committee is pleased to announce that the Donor Gift Recipient (DGR) status for the Dhammaloka Buddhist Centre Building Fund has been reinstated by the ATO last week. This had previously been revoked by the AT0 on 1st November 2019. The BSWA took the matter to Federal Court in April 2021.
The Committee is grateful that the DGR status has been re-established.
Donors will find confirmation on the Australian Business Register ABR register for BSWA which lists all the current Building Funds with DGR status. There is also a DGR tab on our profile page on the ACNC website – “will my Donation be tax deductible?”. Clicking on this tab takes an enquirer to the ABR register mentioned above.
With the reinstatement of the DGR status, it means that if you make a donation to the Dhammaloka Building Fund, that you can request for a tax receipt and your donation will be tax deductible.
If you have any questions please approach Lay Har Goh, Operations Manager or Peter Hong, BSWA Treasurer.
