Payroll Giving

Payroll Giving is the smartest and easiest way to give. It allows your employees to donate, tax free, direct from their pay to any UK registered charity.

Simple to run and easy to set up, it provides charities with a regular income and gives employees a tax break on the donations they make.

Every employer in the UK can start a Payroll Giving scheme, no matter the size of your business or industry type. There are lots of benefits.

Donations are deducted from gross pay - before tax is deducted. This gives immediate tax relief on donations and means it costs less for your employees to donate. The table below gives some examples:
