Legal and Tax Strategies to Support Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives
Suman Rao, Turnaround Manager, India, Member
CSR is also about dynamic innovation... One such aspect I was wondering is - could there be any innovation on the finance side - in general at least in emerging economies. The funding for the social sector from the government suffers from lack of transparency both in the fund allocation as well as its use.
Suppose a municipality wants to build a school and a corporate wants to invest in a CSR initiative of schooling, can they then work together?
For example, a corporation invests in specific municipal bonds issued for purpose of building a school, with corporate support during construction and operation of school? This could be promoted and risk-covered by tax benefits of the state for such municipal bond obligations...
This may result in more effectiveness in sources and uses. Is there any research along similar lines - would be grateful for any pointers!
 

 
Legal and Tax Strategies to Support CSR

Indeed money spent on certain Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) works could be counted as business expenditures and/or considered for tax benefits.
I believe however that CSR should be on a voluntary basis and there are many forms of CSR. Also it is an inspirational "thing" which is difficult to give a legislative treatment.
I would be interested to find out if there are countries or international bodies who are doing something to promote CSR through tax legislation.
