Form 10BD - Statement and Certificate of Donation

Form 10BD

As we are aware, section 80G of the Income Tax Act,1961 provides for deduction on payment of donations. Until the last financial year there was no way to counter check the accuracy of the donations paid. The Income Tax department allowed deduction based on the claim made by the assessee or at most based on the copy of the donation receipt presented by the assessee.

However, the CBDT through notification no. 19/2021 dt 26th March, 2021, has notified Form 10BD and Form 10BE to facilitate more transparency and accuracy on the reconciliation of deductions claimed by the assessee and donations received by the Charitable Organizations.

What is Form 10BD?

Form 10BD is a statement of donations containing the details of donations received by the Charitable Organizations during the financial year. Procedure and Time Limit for Filing Form 10BD The form is required to be filed electronically by donation receiving organizations. The form shall be signed through a digital signature of a person authorized to sign the return of income. Alternatively, it can also be filed through Electronic Verification Code (EVC). The form is required to be filed once in a financial year. The last date for filing the form for Financial Year 2021-22 is 31st May, 2022.
