In New Zealand, you can claim 33.33 cents for every dollar you donated to approved charities and organisations.


Are donations through Trees That Count tax deductible?

Yes, Trees That Count is run by The Project Crimson Trust - a registered charitable trust. Your donation of native trees is eligible for a tax credit.

New Zealand residents that make a donation to plant trees can claim their tax credit at the end of the tax year.

It’s important to note that you can only claim a tax credit on donations or gifts you make through Trees That Count. Although we plant a tree on your behalf for each purchase made through our online store, this is not eligible for a tax credit.

How to download tax certificates

Accessing your Tax Certificates is straightforward.

You can download your Tax Certificates at the end of each financial year from within your account.

Simply log in, select 'My trees', then 'Tax certificates'. Here, you can view and download any available tax certificates once they’re ready.

The downloaded tax certificate also gives you our IRD number and Charity Commission number, if required.

How to claim tax credits

We’re not tax experts, but thankfully the IRD have made it super easy to learn more about charitable donations and tax deductions on their website. They have all the helpful information needed to guide you through the claiming process.
