What is the Cultural Gifts Program?
The Cultural Gifts Program offers tax incentives to encourage people to donate cultural items to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives in Australia.
How much can I claim back for my donation?
You will need to get a valuation of the property you are donating.
Contact me for more information.
The general rule is that the amount you can claim as a deduction is the average of two or more written valuations made by valuers approved by the Arts Secretary.
What can I donate?
Gifted items can include visual and decorative arts, Indigenous arts and cultural artefacts, social history and scientific collections, and archival material.
We manage the program under the gift provisions in Australia's income tax law and with advice from technical experts.
Under the program you could get the following tax incentives for your gift:
The market value of the gift is fully tax deductible, with some exceptions.
You can choose to spread the deduction across up to five income years.
Gifts are exempt from capital gains tax.
If you arrange for valuations for your gift, the cost of those valuations is tax deductible.
