Did you know that you can outsource tax-receipting to ammado at no extra cost to you?
We have so far offered our tax-receipting functionality exclusively to our large nonprofit partners but are now opening it up to all of you.
What exactly does this mean? Once a donor has made a donation, ammado immediately sends an automated email confirmation to the donor. This is our common practice and nothing is about to change here. For many donors this confirmation email suffices as a receipt, especially for smaller donation amounts. In addition, we do allow every donor though to request an extra receipt from the nonprofit. Should the donor choose this option, we ask him/her for additional information and so far have passed this information on to you (you can find it in your donation statement) and it has been your obligation to provide this receipt.
Now you can instruct firstname.lastname@example.org to issue receipts on your behalf which means that every donor requesting an extra receipt will get one emailed by ammado straight away and you don’t have to deal with it anymore. Any hassle such as dealing with lost receipts is eliminated as donors have a full donation and receipt-management area on www.ammado.com.
The format of the receipt is standardized, it does include your logo and name (make sure to upload a logo on your ammado profile!) but you have 5000 characters that you can use for your own customized text. You can also have different text versions for different campaigns.
We only send tax receipts by email (rather than by post), but you can link to any documents and let the donor print them. We do not take responsibility that our receipt format is accepted in your country (although we have done our best to ensure that it does!), so please make a test donation after your tax-receipt functionality is switched on and request a receipt to see what it looks like. And of course we do not guarantee that the donor gets tax-relief when donating to you – the legislation around this can be complex and it is every donors own responsibility to check in advance of a donation if it is tax-deductible in the donor’s home country.
But we can guarantee you that once you are set up, outsourcing tax-receipts to us will eliminate a lot of hassle for you!
