Two of the most common ways that registered charities benefit from the tax system are through income tax concessions (ie not being required to pay tax on their income) and through donee status (ie people or companies can make donations to the registered charity and claim 1/3rd back from the Government, capped at their own taxable income level). However these benefits may not always apply if a charity has overseas charitable purposes.
