Written answers (Question to Finance)

As I informed the Deputy in my reply to question no. 178 on 2 July 2013, this is a matter for the Revenue Commissioners. Self Help Africa 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. The Revenue Commissioners made direct contact with the charity on foot of the Deputy’s previous question to ensure there were no further issues requiring clarification. The charity confirmed that there are no outstanding issues.
