Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.
Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you’re a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p from your take home pay.
Payroll Giving (workplace giving) is a valuable, long term source of revenue, providing regular income to help charities budget and plan ahead more effectively. Employees can choose to support any charity of their choice with a regular donation direct from their pay.
It’s cheaper because it’s tax free – for example, a donation of £5 per month costs the basic rate tax payer £4.00 (the taxman pays the rest!)
Higher rate taxpayers- the only way to pass on your 40% or 50% tax to charities. Only 28% can be recouped via other ways of giving.
