Re: Make Donations to British charities tax deductable in CH?

It's great you support small charities, as they do more with your donation than the bigger ones who have very large overheads. I no longer support Swiss charities as local ones do not really need it as they get so much support from the state, and those in Switzerland that support overseas aid also have high overheads and work with NGO's that do little to actually solve the problem. In fact it's not in their interest to do so, as if they did they would soon be out of work themselves. Read "Dead Aid", it's quite an eye opener.

If you have any UK income, such as dividends, rent, bank interest then they can claim the tax back in the UK. Otherwise I'm afraid it's not deductible.
