Form 10BD – Statement of Donation

  1. If we do not have the information of all the donors and we do not have the details of those who give secret donations, then how will we file this form?

  2. Whether form 10BD applicable for Donation received by politicaly party covered u/s80GGC

  3. Dear Sir/Ma’am,
    I have received many donation of amount less than rupees 1000. Do I need to show those donations in FORM 10BD?

    • There is no minimum amount specified for which Form 10BD needs to be filed which means you need to file it for every donation receipt. Certainly, the donors would claim it as a deduction u/s 80G while filing their ITR.

  4. Sir,
    1.Where donations received are less than Rs.2000/- and donors have not given their PAN NUMBERS to the DONEE CHARITABLE TRUST, is Trust required to give their names IN FORM 10BD, as No certificate can be issued to them which entitle them DEDUCTION OF REBATE UNDER SECTION 80 G of the ITAct, 1961.
    2. As donors who have given more than Rs.2000/- as donation to charitable trust are not entitled to any rebate under the ITAct,1961, can Trust exclude their names in form 10BD.
    3. Can Trust give names and addresses of donors who have given payment by cheque OR
    ELECTRONICALLY exceeding Rs.2000/- and their PAN NUMBERS TO THE TRUST AND EXCLUDES OTHERS WHO HAVE PAID MORE THAN RS.2000/- in cash to the DONEE CHARITABLE TRUST.
    Kindly reply urgently

    • Based on whatever information is available regarding Form 10BD,

      1. If you have any of the below-mentioned detail of the donor you can mention that while filing Form 10BD.
      Aadhaar, PAN, Passport, Ration Card number, Driving License number, Voter’s ID Card number, Taxpayer Identification Number of the country
      where the person resides.
      2. In our opinion, it is advisable for you as Trust to provide all details available with you of the donor whether the donation was in cash, cheque, electronic mode, kind, etc
      3. If a donor has paid more than Rs 2000 in cash they will not be allowed to claim a deduction but you should intimate the correct details to Government in Form 10BD.

      • Whether anonymous donations to be filled in form 10BD?

        What to filled under unique identification number of the donar?

        • In our opinion, you need not report anonymous donation in Form 10BD.

          In “Unique identification number of the donor”, one of the following shall be filled:
          a. If PAN or Aadhaar number is available, one of that should be mandatorily filled.
          b. If neither PAN or Aadhaar is available, one of the following should be filled:-
          – Taxpayer Identification Number of the country where the person resides.
          – Passport number
          – Elector’s photo identity number
          – Driving License number
          – Ration card number

  5. We are running a charitable trust. We have the 10AC. If some companies give money to sponsor an event or to place advertisment in the magazine published by the trust, how to report in 10BD. What will happen if the company which gives money treats as an expenditure fully for advertisement or promotion. In other words, they may not claim under 80G, but treat as expenditure for promotion.

    • The answer lies in what kind of receipt was issued by Charitable Trust when the company gave money to sponsor the event or publish an advertisement in the magazine? I believe it would be a donation receipt only then certainly you need to report the same in Form 10BD irrespective of the fact that the company shows it as expenditure or donation.

    • 1. Electronic payment
      2. As this is the first year for Form 10BD, can’t comment on how the information will reflect in Form 26AS or AIS. But we believe it will reflect like other details are displayed for a taxpayer.

    • Whether the amount was given to trust to its bank account? or whether the amount was paid by the sponsor directly to the magazine or advt company? This needs to be considered. If the amount was given to trust and if they have given a 80G donation form to the trust which clearly says the donation is towards corpus of the trust and it was deposited in the trust bank account meant for corpus, only then it becomes donation under 80G.

  6. trust received donation from company under CSR activity is this required to report under form 10BD.

    ALL THE DONATION RECEIVED BY TRUST FROM DONOR IS REQUIRED TO FURNISH UNDER 10BE OR ONLY THE DONATION RECEIVED FROM DONOR AND IN RETURN 80G RECEIPT ISSUE TO DONOR ARE REQUIRED TO FURNISH UNDER 10BD

    • The company will not be eligible to claim the CSR expenses as donations u/s 80G. But Trust will have to show it as a specific grant under donation type for CSR funds received by them.

      Trust needs to file details of all the donations received in Form 10BD. The government will treat donations that are not reported in Form 10BD as anonymous donations.

      • Dear Team,

        What should be Section under which donation is eligible for deduction in case of donation received as a part of CSR Activity?

        • The company will not be eligible to claim the CSR expenses as donations u/s 80G. But Trust will have to show it as a specific grant under donation type for CSR funds received by them.

          But today(16.05.2022) in the CBDT webinar it was communicated by officials that they would be issuing a clarification in this regard. so should wait for a day or two

  7. trust received donation from company under CSR activity is this required to report under form 10BD.

  8. Query
    A trust doing medical relief. collects small sums as Rs 100 or 200 from patients as donation. Total amount collected daily is accounted as donation. All are poor patients.They will not claim 80 G. How to include in Form 10 BD these daily donations, or it can be omitted since small amount

    • It will be treated as an anonymous donation in that case. Clarity on how to report anonymous donations is expected from Government as per the latest webinar held on 16th May 2022.

  9. Are charitable organisation required to file Form 10BD (NIL), even if no donations have been received during the year.

  10. Specific Grant received from Government, how to report? We don’t have the Pan number of the Govt Treasury office.

  11. first of all, Thankyou for this article. I have few queries, Please answer
    1)We are running a charitable trust. We got provisional approval(Form 10AC). Do we need to file form 10BD?(since we got provisional only, we have this doubt)
    2)We have 5-6 anonymous donations got through electronic mode, do we need to enter those details in form 10BD?

    • Thank you for your appreciation. Glad it was helpful.

      1. Form 10BD is required to be filed by every person having approval under section 80G or section 35. It is irrelevant whether the organization has provisional approval or regular approval.

      2. Yes every donation received needs to be reported.

  12. how long does it take to get display of DONATION RECEIVED by Trust in 26AS, AIS, & TIS

    • There is no specific date mentioned by Govt about this. But mostly after 15th June, it should be visible. It is advisable to take form Form 10BE from the Trust as proof.

  13. Hi i recieved donation slip 10BE by the donee but it is not reflecting in 26AS portal.PAN details provided by donee are correct.

  14. Madam, we are an NGO, we have received many donations via our payment gateway like stripe, razorpay, donorbox, etc. These donors have received money receipts from these gateways and the consolidated amounts have been transferred to our account from a centralised account of these gateways.
    So, now how do we issue them form 10BE since these donations were not directly credited to our account in their respective names?
    If a person has donated on 30th March, 2022 via donorbox, then his amount has been transferred to our account in April along with some other donations, then how can we issue form 10BE for 2021-22 financial year? or should we issue it for 2022-23?

    • You can ask the payment gateways for details of the donors as they have issued them the receipts. If your donors wish to claim a deduction u/s 80G then it is mandatory for you to file Form 10BD and issue Form 10BE. Otherwise, it is an anonymous donation in the hands of an NGO.

      If a person donates on 30th March 2022 it should be considered in FY 21-22 and not FY 22-23.
