Rules for donations
Circular No 3, of 22 January 2008 (Link 1), in paragraph 2 (Objective scope of application) expressly, the gift tax, does not apply to those of low value (Article 783 of the civil code): accordingly, You can put in your site Donate button, without being held, as long as the donations remain small, any tax compliance.
This is only valid if the donations, are donations properly so called, that is, if are optional, and if it is not secured (and even suggested), a minimum amount. In addition, donations should not be, a necessary condition to access content, or services offered on the site (or even a part of them). That is, there should be no discrimination, among the visitors who donate, and those that don't.
If this is not the case, the "donations" they would lose the characteristic of liberality, turn into payments and would become, ultimately, just a gimmick to hide a real business (that requires a different, and more onerous, framing), which can lead to heavy fines.
QUESTION: How to apply the concept of low value to the annual total of donations received? That is, if recessed 1000 euro of donations per year, don't declare anything but recessed 10.000 Mila I must declare them?
REPLY: In rules, referring to the single donation, and the number of donations, You can receive in a year, or the total amount. For example,: 1000 donations from 10 euro each, are treated individually, as donations of low value and the total 10000 Euro is not relevant. This according to a literal application of the standard.
But we must say, that such a situation would not be very realistic and that, If donations become “too many”, a tax auditor might get suspicious, and to think that behind those donations, There are fees for some commercial or, worse, illegal (recycling, etc…).
