DIRT Exemption for Schools

The Board of Management should approach the bank stating that as a school in the Archdiocese of Dublin, the school has charity status under the Charity Reference Number CHY 7424.  The school should be entitled to a refund if, in fact, it has been charged DIRT over a period of time.

Schools should note that there is no need to use a CHY number when applying for tax relief on donations, the sole reference used should be the School Roll Number.
