Payroll Giving is one of the simplest, most tax-effective ways to give to charity as you can make regular tax-free donations to a charity of your choice, straight from your salary each payday. Payroll Giving is also known as Give As You Earn, Workplace Giving and Giving Through Your Pay – all of these names refer to the same government scheme.
Payroll Giving donations are deducted from your gross salary (before tax is deducted), reducing the total amount of income tax that you pay; you receive immediate tax relief on every payroll giving donation - a £1 donation will cost a donor 80p as a standard rate (20%) taxpayer or 60p as a higher rate (40%) taxpayer - meaning you can give more for less!
Payroll Giving is the most tax-efficient way for higher-rate taxpayers to give as it is the only way we can automatically receive all your tax on a donation. Here are some examples of how you can #GiveMoreForLess:
