TAK EXPLANATORY DECISION ON TREATMENT OF DONATIONS

In August 2016, the Tax Administration of Kosovo (TAK) published an Explanatory Decision aimed at clarifying the tax treatment of donations from aspects of Value Added Tax (VAT), Corporate Income Tax (CIT) and Tax in Personal Income (TPI). This decision further specifies the VAT exemptions for all imports and purchases by NGOs, paid by government donations of those countries that have bilateral agreements with Kosovo, as well as for all donations that support programs and projects of a humanitarian character, reconstruction and European integration, including EU funding.
