The Connexional Office have received a number of phone calls in recent weeks from the IRD wanting to confirm if a parish is part of the Methodist Church or the person signing the donation receipt is known to the Methodist Church. In most cases we are able to confirm them but for some we have rejected as we are unable to confirm the details.
The Connexional Office does have a form (in PDF and Word format) that parishes and other entities are able to use for donation receipts. These comply with the requirements of the Income Tax Act.
Wendy or Peter in the Connexional Office are able to send you these.
