It’s time to update your donation tax receipt! Why? The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has changed their website address from www.cra-arc.gc.ca to www.canada.ca. The new URL, canada.ca/charities-giving, will need to be included on donation receipts for not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) and charities. Although the old website does redirect to the new one, it is highly advised for NPOs to update their official donation receipts to reflect the new URL. Please update your official donation receipts to have the correct website address. The deadline to make this change is March 31st, 2019. If you have already printed receipts with the old URL, it is okay to still use them as long as they are updated by the deadline.
What else do I need to include on an official donation receipt?
For a comprehensive list of what information needs to be included on donation receipts, please visit the CRA’s website. Keep in mind that information on these receipts must be clear, concise, and not easily altered.
If you have any questions regarding your donation receipts, or any questions in general, contact our NPO Team today at 1-866-822-9992.
