Abstract
The article explores the issues of government measures to promote the commercial organizations' participation in charitable activities. The reporting data of banks, represented in Irkutsk region, are used as the empirical basis for the study. The study has used a sample of 49 banks, operating in Irkutsk region in 2011–2014. The research is based on the assumption that the preferential taxation reduces the cost of charitable services for the company. The authors set two main tasks: to construct a theoretical model, describing the tax benefit effect on financial contribution to the charitable sector, and to find the optimal limit for charitable spending, as a part of expenses reducing the taxable profit of the company. The authors concluded that there is the hypothetical possibility of increasing charitable donations as the result of introducing preferential taxation. The optimal limit of charitable expenses for tax purposes is up to 5% of the taxable profit. It is rationale to provide this optimal limit taking into account the budget efficiency.
