In September 2009 the States of Guernsey agreed to change the way in which tax relief was given in respect of donations to Guernsey Registered Charities (GRC).

Previously income tax relief was only available to individuals who made payments under an irrevocable Deed of Covenant in favour of a Guernsey Registered Charity for a period in excess of 3 years; no relief was available to Guernsey resident individuals in respect of noncovenanted donations to Guernsey charities.

In summary, the system up to 2020 works as follows:

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to both Sure Community Foundation and Helen Holmes for their amazing donations of iphones to help ensure we have operational lines for our 24/7 service.

We have been running our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal since the start of the crisis, but there are always key pieces of equipment that we require to ensure we can operate and having recently had an issue with one of our emergency phones which failed we launched an appeal for a new iphone and cannot thank the Sure Community Foundation and Helen Holmes who donated a handset each.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to both Waitrose stores in Guernsey for their amazing support and to help with our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal .

Shortly after releasing the desperate need for support at the end of March the team got in touch to see how they could help.

A few days later we received not only a fantastic rage of fresh fruit and veg for the animals, but we also had a box of goodies to keep the team going at the GSPCA.

Since then each week we have had donations from both stores which has helped feed the many animals in our care.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to the Petplan Charitable Trust.

As a result of our recent Urgent Kennel Appeal the Petplan Charitable Trust have donated £5,000 to this must needed and urgent work.

Over the last two months much needed work on the kennel floors has taken place, but this uncovered major drain and structural issues.

Our kennels which were built in 2005 had a vinyl flooring put down which had sadly got to a point recently where new flooring was desperately needed which has been taking place since mid May.
