The value of taxation concessions that may be available to not-for-profit animal protection organization should not be underestimated. That said, the barriers to obtaining endorsement for these concessions must also be appreciated. This paper focuses on the various tax concessions provided in the legislation which may be relevant for animal protection organization and highlights the limitations on access to these concessions, both those explicit in the legislation and those which arise from the manner in which the concession system is administered. The paper will focus on two particular endorsement processes: endorsement as a tax concession charity and endorsement as a deductible gift recipient.
