roll-over of donations in excess of the ten per cent deduction limit come into

excess donations made in 2014 tax year to the 2015/02 provisional tax estimate?

ITA, that contains the current roll-over of donations exceeding the threshold,

roll-over of excess donations made in 2014 tax year for the 2015/02 provisional
