A COMPANY

Would you like to involve your company in patronage activities promoting research and providing financial assistance to a project? 

The European Centre for Financial Law can help you set up corporate patronage activities according to the specific nature of your business (sector, geographical base, history, values, etc.)

Corporate patronage can take four forms

Your company makes a financial donation to the European Centre for Financial Law

You choose to assign it, in agreement with the Centre, to a particular objective or project

This corporate sponsorship gives rise to a tax reduction. 

Donations made to the European Centre for Financial Law are deductible against corporate tax at a rate of 60% of the sums paid, up to a limit of 5% of turnover ex. VAT

Any excess may be carried forward in respect of the five subsequent financial years. 

Project organisers and the European Centre for Financial Law can offer benefits in kind to patrons, in addition to the relief. 

These are permitted at a rate of 25% of the amount of the donation

For example: 

Your company makes a donation of 10,000 Euros to the European Centre for Financial Law to support the organisation of the Centre’s thesis prize. 

In return, you will receive an invitation to this event, as well as a communication to the press and your customers or employees to highlight your patronage activities, within the limit of benefits in kind valued at up to2,500 EurosThanks to the tax reduction, your donation will only cost you 4,000 Euros. 

So many reasons to make a commitment to work alongside the European Centre for Financial Law!

Your company gives the European Observatory of Financial Law equipment assigned to a project of your choice (a new computer for a student receiving a grant based on social criteria, for example)

You can also provide the Observatory with free use of office premises in which to host one of its events

This corporate sponsorship gives rise to a tax reduction. 

Donations made to the European Observatory of Financial Law are deductible against corporate tax at a rate of 60% of the sums paid, up to a limit of 5% of turnover ex. VAT

Any excess may be carried forward in respect of the five subsequent financial years. 

The value of donations in kind is calculated based on the ex. VAT cost of the equipment provided or, in the case of provision of office premises, based on the ex. VAT rental price amount

Project organisers and the European Observatory of Financial Law can offer benefits in kind to patrons, in addition to the relief. 

These are permitted at a rate of 25% of the amount of the donation

The company provides an employee with a particular skill to the European Observatory of Financial Law on a temporary basis.

The free provision of this skill brings entitlement to a tax reduction calculated according to the cost, excluding taxes and margins, of the time spent on the project

Project organisers and the European Observatory of Financial Law can offer benefits in kind to patrons, in addition to the relief. 

These are permitted at a rate of 25% of the amount of the donation

Cause-related marketing involves a company allocating a proportion of the proceeds from its business to support a project

Within the framework of this form of corporate patronage, an agreement is signed between the company and the European Observatory of Financial Law: the company undertakes to pay, for a fixed period, a fraction of its margins to the Observatory. 

These donations are allocated to one or more public or charity projects supported by the Observatory

This system strengthens the company’s positive image, while also allowing it to benefit from tax relief: donations made by the company are deductible against corporate tax at a rate of 60% of the sums paid, up to a limit of 5% of turnover ex. VAT 

For the organiser of the beneficiary project, the cause-related marketing approach means additional funds for renovation assistance, and greater visibility thanks to the company’s support

The Centre will provide tax receipts on request
