Tax-deductible donations

Private persons and corporations are allowed to deduct tax on donations.

Private persons

  • Private persons are allowed to deduct tax on donations of and between 850 euro and 500 000 euro. Hanken is responsible for registering private donations with the tax authority and it will automatically appear on your tax declaration. For more information please visit the tax authority's web-site (only in Finnish).

  • If a corporation's taxable earnings amount to 20 000 euro, a donation of 2000 euro means 18 000 euro will be taxed. Note that this does not apply to open-ended investment companies or limited partnership business entities.
