Giving creates happiness

The state has cut back on art and culture. Despite the positive recommendation by the Dutch Council for Culture, Introdans has seen its budget reduced by half a million euros. If Introdans is close to your heart then there are many ways you can help the company to continue its existence. By visiting its shows. By becoming a Friend. And above all by donating.

Let Introdans dance.

Introdans holds the status of a Public Benefit Organisation (ANBI in Dutch). This means that your donation is tax-deductible for you. Moreover, until the end of 2016 you can make use of a favourable tax regulation: the sum of your donation to Introdans can be deducted by a factor of 1.25 from your income. In the most favourable situations, a donation of € 100 will cost you just € 35 net. This extra tax deduction is applicable to donations of up to € 5,000 (per year) made to cultural institutions.

Types of donation.

• one-time donation | Primarily donations that can be proved with documents. This involves donations in which an amount is donated once and as a single sum. You can deduct your donation from your taxable income if the donation amounts to more than 1 per cent and less than 10 per cent of your income.
• periodic Notarial Deed of Donation | This form of donation is made for at least five consecutive years. The same amount is donated every year and the donation must be defined by deed of notary. (These expenses are borne by Introdans for donations of € 1000 per year and above. Dirkzwager advocaten en notarissen will draw up the deed for you.) In this case, the sum you pay annually to Introdans is fully income-tax deductible.
• public limited companies / private limited companies | There are varying regulations for enterprises. Public limited companies (NVs) and private limited companies (BVs) in particular can deduct a sum equal to 1.5 of the donation. Different regulations apply to other legal forms.
