Written answers (Question to Finance)

This is a matter for the Revenue Commissioners. I am advised by Revenue that the organisation referred to by the Deputy has a charitable tax exemption and recently sought approval to amend its Memorandum and Articles of Association. The required approval was granted by Revenue on 16 May. I am informed that Revenue made direct contact with the charity on foot of the Deputy’s representation to ensure there were no further issues requiring clarification. The charity confirmed that there are no outstanding issues.
