What is the difference between a donation and sponsorship?

A donation is free of any consideration and supports a charitable purpose in full.
All donations for which a quid pro quo is desired – such as the printing of a company logo or the presentation of a report on the website with a link – are considered sponsoring. Instead of a donation receipt, a voucher is issued for sponsoring. Sponsorship is particularly interesting for companies because they can deduct the sponsored amount as operating costs for tax purposes without a maximum limit.

What are the advantages of sponsorship for a company?

Sponsorship expenses are generally deductible by the sponsor as business expenses without limitation, whereas the donation is only deductible for tax purposes within certain maximum limits.
In order to deduct sponsorship as a business expense, the sponsorship only has to be “business-related”. It is sufficient for the sponsoring company to expect economic benefits, for example through advertising or a positive image transfer.

What impact does sponsorship have on the tax burden?

If you sponsor 10,000 euros to the Tiny Living Alliance, you will save tax of 2,550 euros on a profit of 100,000 euros. The benefits you receive from sponsoring therefore only cost you 7,450 euros instead of 10,000 euros.

How we determine the trustworthiness of a Tiny House company?

We as a foundation in the field of Tiny Living have set ourselves the goal to distinguish Tiny House companies together with our independent partners from non-ambitious companies, as we believe that every trustworthy and transparent company in the field of Tiny Living should have the opportunity to show its honest intentions to potential customers. We achieve this with our trust marks on the company presences. Every customer and Tiny House company can use the service of the Tiny Living Alliance. This means that we not only protect Tiny House builders against dubious customers, but also customers, through our buyer protection. Furthermore, we give customers and builders the opportunity to contact us in the event of an ambiguity through the trust mark on the websites, in order to find an agreement between the Tiny House companies and the customers with our help. Through this and other services, we give Tiny House companies and customers confidence and security.
