This is the reference page for the XML element receiver-org. See also the relevant overview pages: Related Data, Organisations, Transaction


The organisation receiving the money from the transaction (if omitted on incoming funds then the receiver organisation is assumed to be the reporting organisation).


This element must occur no more than once (within each parent element).



Machine-readable identification string for the organisation. Must be in the format {Registration Agency} - (Registration Number} where {Registration Agency} is a valid code in the Registration Agency code list and {Registration Number } is a valid identifier issued by the {Registration Agency}. If this is not present then the narrative MUST contain the name of the organisation.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

transaction/receiver-org/@ref should match the regex [^\/\&\|\?]+


If outgoing funds are being provided to another activity that is reported to IATI, this may, if possible, record the unique IATI activity identifier for that activity.

This value must be of type xsd:string.
