              Cut Your Phone Bill and Help Cut Kidney Deaths in Australia 

Phone users in Australia will be able to get a

tax break

on their phone bills which could save them

up to hundreds of dollars a year and at the same time help fight kidney disease, which is involved in

killing around fifty Australians every day.      

Through a new initiative to fund research into Kidney Disease, provide programs and help assist over two

million Australians with some form of Chronic Kidney Disease, Kidney Health Australia has launched ‘KHA

Comms’ to market mobile, home phone and ADSL services.

Derek Finch, Head of Customer Operations, Kidney Health Australia said customers of KHA Comms are

able to designate a percentage of their telephone service account as a tax deductible donation to Kidney

Health Australia, which will enable them to claim a tax deduction.

“In the case of someone on a $99.00 Gold monthly plan they will receive a tax deductible credit of

over $115.00 annually. The same tax deduction program is available on home phones and ADSL

internet services. 

“Given the current economic situation for many Australian families the KHA Comms initiative will

provide considerable savings for families on tight budgets.   

“People can simply switch their phone accounts over via KHA Comms with a simple phone call and

immediately go on the program.”     

Kidney Health Australia does not receive any government funding and is entirely funded by the support of

the Australian community through fundraising and commercial activities.

In the past decade it has invested some $21 million on vital kidney research and is responsible for assisting

thousands of kidney patients and their families.
